Bug#405129: installation-reports: No message displayed if there is not enough space for the installation.

Package: installation-reports
Severity: important

I tried to install Etch using the RC1 installer (expertgui way).
I didnt allocate enough space for the installation. Obviously, it
couldnt finish the installation, and I was getting generic "I cant
install" messages, giving me the option to try again, but I wasnt told
that there just wasnt enough space. I had to get out of the installation
and check for myself what was wrong.

I think the gui should tell me that I was out of free space, instead of
just failing and even telling me try to select the option again in the

PS: The System Info below is about my current working system, not
the installer Im talking about. Not removing it because i dont know if
reportbug will cry if I delete it.
