Comment(by David Kergyl):

 Thanks, Sascha.  This sounds like a serious problem, if there's no way to
 recover overlay space.  Perhaps the warning message should be "The overlay
 is almost full; backup your active Journal work to a new USB stick NOW,
 and get a new Sugar-on-a-Stick."

 The wiki should also be updated to warn new stick users about the
 importance of limiting downloads, including updates and activities, on 1Gb

 FWIW, when I erase Journal entries on a new stick, Sugar reports the
 Journal space as being larger (even though the overlay space must be
 smaller if you are correct).  Is journal space not the same as overlay
