Description Jindrich Novy 2006-11-27 04:42:17 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #217159 +++

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 :(
