When starting the installation of the broxser, the only thing that happens is
that the XPI-files starts, and decompresses some files to the c:\temp-diractory.
Than it stopp without any message. The reason was that the harddrive where the
temp-directory was placed, became full. But therer where no indication at all,
that the disk was full. I guess there is a minimum recuirement of disk-space.
But a check of the installer, and a message, would have been nice.

Thanks for a good browser.

There is already such a check for temp space (we get the opposite complaint in
the commercial Netscape product) -- we must be getting the required temp space
wrong somewhere.

Oh wait, is this before any UI comes up? Yeah we probably don't check then since
originally it was just going to be the 200K stub that self-expands and the
chance of running out of space is extremely remote.

Over to curt, this may have an impact on the GRE installer which is possibly
going to be installed as a blob. I believe this is failing in the nsinstall
unpacking stage, before setup.exe is ever launched.
