not sure who is in fault... the device had a very small disk and basically
a / partition

Its my belief that the dm is in charge of inform the user of problems
during the login, even if this erros are generated by another layer

What layer do you think should report this error if at all, Yves ?

Basically what i am asking with this bug is, should this error be reported
to the user by the DM or not at all and let the user put this puzzle
together by themselves as any aceptable and responsible grown up should be
able to do anyway??
