Description Jón Fairbairn 2005-09-01 18:37:42 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

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):

How reproducible:

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 
silent crash
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.

Additional info:

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
