Description of problem:
If one attempts to save a file larger than the free space remaining on a device, one of three things happens:
(1) an I/O error dbox (OK, but it ought to say that there's not enough space rather than somethine general)
(2) a backtrace (I'll attach one)
(3) silent crash (ie openoffice just disappears)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make a small fs in a file
2. mount it on a loopback
3. fill most of it up from /dev/zero
4. create a file with oowriter
5. attempt to save on the loopback fs
Actual Results: one of
crash with backtrace
error dbox "Error saving document <blah>: General Error: General input/output error."
Expected Results: error dbox saying something about there not being enough room on the device.
This happens if someone tries to save to a floppy, not just loopback fss.
Contents of file are apparently lost.

I'm on the end of a dialup line, so not terribly inclined to saturate it for 20
hours or so to install openoffice.org-debuginfo
OOo is known to be flawed with out of diskspace issues, see
