In my case there is definitely space on the device but installator crashes anyway:

root@ubuntu:/var/log# cat syslog |grep space

Oct 23 12:02:28 ubuntu ubiquity: unable to install new version of `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.0.0-12-generic/include/config/pata/cs5536.h': No space left on device

But there is 15 GB available:
root@ubuntu:/var/log# df -h /target/usr/src/
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 19G 2.3G 15G 14% /target

What is interesting is this:
root@ubuntu:/var/log# ls -l /usr/src/linux-headers-3.0.0-12-generic/
ls: cannot access /usr/src/linux-headers-3.0.0-12-generic/: No such file or directory
