Bug#213038: dpkg: segfault if destination partition is full

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.15
Severity: normal
Tags: patch
Followup-For: Bug #213038

I don't know if this is related to the issue reported by Gunter Ohrner,
but I also get segfault when running out of disk space. Found the cause
by running dpkg under valgrind, seems to be a printf-like format string
with four %'s, but only three arguments. Patch follows:

     case BUFFER_WRITE_FD:
       if((ret= write(data->data.i, buf, length)) < 0 && errno != EINTR)

+	ohshite(_("failed in buffer_write(fd) (%i, ret=%zi): %s"), data->data.i, ret, desc);

After fix, I got this message instead of segfault, which seems right.

failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1): backend dpkg-deb during `./usr/share/locale/cs/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo': No space left on device
