Yum crashes when temporary filesystem for downloading RPMs is full.

Description of problem:
Trying to update my system with the following filesystems:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 3.9G 275M 3.5G 8% /
/dev/hda2 244M 9.4M 222M 5% /boot
tmpfs 252M 0 252M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda6 9.9G 6.3G 3.1G 68% /home
/dev/hda9 487M 28M 434M 7% /tmp
/dev/hda8 12G 3.8G 7.1G 35% /usr
/dev/hda10 532M 131M 375M 26% /var
/var has been filled by package updates causing yum to crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q yum
Fill the /var filesystem, then try to update.
Should check the space size available and/or be configurable. Error message did
not explicitly precise that the destination FS was full.
Let me know if you need a dump.
OK, I checked. That's configurable, but should be checked or exception should be
actually this one is a problem and the config option doesn't solve that one.
There's a mention of the need to fix the downloading rpm bit in the code and
it'll get fixed up before long.

Looking at the download code since this time I'm pretty sure this is fixed. All
destinations are checked for available space before downloaded.
