It's run at boot, so:

Only if you're already below the disk space threshold.

   > - My XO slows to a crawl so I reboot (anything happen here?)

During this reboot is where we delete some files.  I think the
deployments probably run pretty-boot and don't see text messages,
so these users won't see anything different at all.  If they did
see text messages during boot, they would see:

   Not enough disk space.
   Deleting /home/olpc/.sugar/default/datastore/store/XXX-XXX
   (repeated if necessary)

.. scroll past on the Linux console.
