Formerly, it stopped, you are correct.  However, a recent bug has/had it 
not stopping.  I believe I saw a fix for that already logged in the CVS 
version as of a couple days ago...  Yes:

r239 on 2007-04-20, Bug 431552 – 0.127 no longer stops downloads when out 
of drive space.

However, r242 on 2007-04-21 was the 0.128 version bump, which would have 
included r239.

Maybe the fix was only for bodies, not headers?  I'd suggest finishing 
your test, and if it's indeed overviews/headers (tho over a gig of 
headers is a /lot/), file a bug.  Of course also file one if it's not 
that but still seems to happen.  r241 IIRC fixed a crash on corrupt 
header files bug.  Maybe there's another or maybe the fix made things 
worse in some cases.
