Well, there you have it.  The drive on which you have Linux Installed,
which includes your /home partition (where everything gets saved by
default) is less than 10GB total and is completely full.  Rythmbox is
crashing when it tries to update it's database and the disk is full.

Anyone know what "overflow" demon is responsible for mounting /tmp on
tmpfs?  That's kind of cool
