[Bug 178774] Silent failure when out of /tmp space

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnomebaker

In Gnomebaker 0.6.2, copying a DVD when /tmp is low on space will result
in a truncated, broken copy. There is no visual error report .

Steps to reproduce:

1. Use a small (hint: ramdisk) /tmp space and plan to copy a larger-than-/tmp DVD.
2. Tools->Copy DVD
3. Copy with "Burn the disk" (single optical drive system, if that matters).
4. Watch the burn "succeed" and enjoy a new coaster/frisbee.

I suggest catching and failing on a out-of-space error when writing the
temporary iso file.

User workaround: In the preferences, set the temporary folder to a place
that has plenty of room.
