Description Radek Bíba 2006-11-24 09:18:42 EST
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. occupy all space in /tmp (or other $TMPDIR)
2. run mc
Actual results:
mc starts looping and printing:
Cannot create temporary directory /tmp/mc-radek: No space left on device (28)
and after a while, it segfaults

Expected results:
A gentle error message? A 'light' mode without using /tmp?

Additional info:
As a matter of fact, I just wanted to use mc to clean things up and free some
space but it refused to start :(
