 Logging cleanup creates a directory and moves previous logs into it.  This
 requires available disk space.

 When disk space is insufficient, or disk is read-only, or some other I/O
 error occurs, the ''sugar-session'' terminates.  On systems that only
 exist to run ''sugar-session'', the X server is repeatedly restarted.
 Here is an example from Sugar 0.84 with a full disk:

 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/bin/sugar-session", line 185, in <module>
   File "/usr/bin/sugar-session", line 141, in main
   File "/usr/bin/sugar-session", line 80, in cleanup_logs
 OSError: [Errno 28] No queda espacio en el dispositivo:
