We might need to check that we're not running out of inodes here rather than blocks.

I was just helping a user who had got a disk full type of error from dpkg, but his ~10GB root had plenty
of free blocks; but he had run out of the ~610k inodes allocated; now I think in his case that was an upgrade on a 10.04 server, but still.

We might need a more careful analysis of the full errors to spot this.
