[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#562229: squeeze: disk full error silently swallowed

Package: squeeze
Version: 0.2.3-8
Severity: normal

A friend backed up a user directory to a pendrive. Everything went fine, or so she thought. I wanted to save something on the same pendrive, and found out that it was full. I got suspicious, and unfortunately it turned out that the archive she made is broken:

tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

She told me that squeeze ran without an error, so I tried to make an archive to the already full pendrive. It flashed the progress window, then exited without an error, just created a file of 0 bytes. Tried the same with a half-full other pendrive, the results are the same: the disk is filled with a broken archive and no error is reported. 100% reproducible.

I invoked squeeze by right clicking on the directory and picked 'Create archive...' from the menu in Thunar. If I ran squeeze directly, the result is basically the same: File/New, set the archive name on the pendrive, then Action/Add : no error is given, a 0 byte archive is created.

This bug is rather painful because the disk with the user directory crashed since then...
