Bug Description

Binary package hint: revelation

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open revelation with password file.
2. Make your disk full.
3. Add some passwords.
4. Try to save file.

Expected (normal) result: passwords a savead.
Actually i got empty password.db and message like (unable to save blah blah).

So ALL MY PASSWORDS WAS LOST. (ofcourse i have backup ;))

Revelation should check availible space first and then try to write passwords.db.

It's very serious bug it causes data loss.

Is there a reason we can't just fix it with a merge?

I had trouble doing the merge (see #520281), so I just tackled the individual problem as a temporary solution. Certainly a merge would be preferred.
