Shouldn't this be closed as a duplicate, then? Why is it invalid?

looking for exact number is quite some work, especially for the hundred of duplicates opened every week and there is no reason to keep duplicates open, you can look for the number though

I looked for a duplicate before I filed the ticket, and didn't find one. I looked for a duplicate just now, and didn't find one. Maybe I am supposed to be looking in a different issue tracker than this one?

Should I interpret this to mean that even if this isn't a ticket, you think it _is_ invalid?

not really but that's rather a configuration issue, if you run out of space there you will have lot of issues, the software could be better at displaying clear messages about the issue though

Couldn't find the exact number but there's a couple of upstream related issues, anyways this should be send upstream and let them decide what to do, as Sebastien said if you don't have enough space for saving files on tmp that is going to lead to multiple issues, like sessions not working, not being able to login, etc, indeed it could be better and display a message about it, feel free to send it upstream at bugzilla.gnome.org. thanks.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.
