Thanks very much for the hint. I set --tempdir to a filesystem with
about 1 TB free, and then --check-destination-dir finished successfully
in about an hour. I ran df in a loop, and saw a fair bit more space
used, but I didn't mangge to see files appearing in ~/TMP. So it seems
like they were created and then unlinked or something.
Given all that, it's a bug that there is a backtrace rather than a clear
error messsage, and that the filesystem that's out of space is not
