Bug#289393: "No space left on device." Which device?

Package: rdiff-backup
Version: 0.13.4-3
Severity: normal


rdiff-backup puts hundreds of megabytes of temporary files on /tmp,
happily overflowing it, and then throws a unhandled exception after
outputting "No space left on device".

(1)   If a device overflows, rdiff-backup should have the courtesy of
      telling the user _which_ device suffered the overflow.
(2)   Unhandled exceptions are bad.
