config/index.php does not detect a full disk, as the fwrite() result is not checked.
If you have a full disk, a lot more than this will probably fail...
I agree with Brion's comment, which is one of the reasons I marked this as low
1. this is "probably" the only direct write to the mediawiki folder/directory
tree. Databases and image uploads and /tmp could well be on separate
file-systems (and have related writes that could use error-checking).
2. it is better to detect and report a full/restricted file-system early and
descriptively. Config is an early and descriptive process.
Probably fixed in cvs. Dieing if fwrite() return false.
The fix was first released with v1.4beta1.
