From a quick scan of the PAN code base, I could gather that every file system command returns an appropriate error on failure caused by insuffciant disk space. Since PAN uses the g_io_* functions and g_* wrappers for file handling thats a good place to start.

Unfortunately, PAN uses the filesystem for many operations, so evey such operation need to be checked for gracious error handling - ea keep its previous state uncorrupted. This looks like lots of work :(

I want to fix a problem with Pan thats bothered me for a long time but
after looking at the source, I realize that I need a little guidance on
where to start.  Hopefully someone can give me a couple of hints on what
source files contain the code related to what I'm looking for.

I want to add detection for full hard disk to Pan.  I'm thinking of
something along the lines of if the available space is less than the X
bytes then freeze downloading until more space becomes available.

If someone could point me to the bits of code I should be looking at I
would appreciate it.  task-save.c was my first thought, but it doesn't
seem to contain what I'm looking for.
