It seems like I am seeing two different outcomes.  On Version 3.0.28a
I get a disk full if the containing directory for the mount point
(which is mounted to a usb stick with enough space) has too little

on 3.2.15 it appears the same at first, but it doesn't actually stop
me if there is actually enough space on the dist (as opposed to the
reported space)

I am using the same client on both cases
