        Operating System: GNU/Linux



To reproduce:
1. have a machine with a 4G file on it and just 1G free space
2. mc
3. Left -> Shell connection, enter remote machine name and connect
4. In the right pane, locate the big file and hit F5 to copy it to the remote

while mc pretends it is transferring the file to the remote machine, it is
actually copying it to ~/tmp/mc-$USER.
If I had enough space it would start transfer _AFTER_ the file is completely
copied (after it _CLAIMS_ to user 100% was transferred).
But since I do not have this much space, I am SOL and it fails.
