Yup!

WRT "not enough space on the device" during a paste, I've heard of
this happening when the directory used by Python for temporary files
lives in (as it often does) a small partition.  A temp file created by
ExportImport.py can run out of disk space then.  Here's to find out
which directory Python uses for temp files:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] tim]$ python
Python 2.3.5 (#1, Feb 16 2005, 10:31:52)
...
>>> import tempfile
>>> tempfile.gettempdir()
'/tmp'

If that's on a too-small partition, you can boost the partition size. 
Or you can tell Python to use a different directory for temp files,
via setting an envar (TMPDIR should work for Linux boxes):

[EMAIL PROTECTED] tim]$ TMPDIR=~ python
Python 2.3.5 (#1, Feb 16 2005, 10:31:52)
...
>>> import tempfile
>>> tempfile.gettempdir()
'/home/tim'
