Thanks for the quick reply, but... hmm. I'm gonna check this if and when
I reproduce the situation, but my machine would seem to have bucketloads
of space available:
$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 15G 3.8G 11G 27% /
devtmpfs 459M 0 459M 0% /dev
tmpfs 463M 76K 463M 1% /dev/shm
tmpfs 463M 6.3M 457M 2% /run
tmpfs 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock
tmpfs 463M 0 463M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/mmcblk0p1 63M 21M 43M 33% /boot
tmpfs 93M 0 93M 0% /run/user/1000
Do you have any indication which filesystem/location JACK would be
looking for the condition? Could it also be a case of flag misuse?
