      Description

      When Minecraft fails to write data due to "no space left on device" issues, the error is not treated as fatal. This means the server can continue to run, sometimes for hours, causing an issue which impacts a single failed write to balloon out into an issue effecting dozens of chunks / users.

      It's a bad situation, which obviously shouldn't happen, ideally, but the way Minecraft currently handles the issue turns a bad situation into a much worse situation.
