During backup, delayed response to lack of free space

When backup code is executing, it does not respond to messages
regarding a shortage of free space.  The message is received and
processed when backup is complete, which may be some time after the
actual free space shortage has occurred and been resolved.
While the backup may report failure with an #rtErrFreeSpaceThreshold
error, it is likely that the backup file will be valid and usable.


Avoid running out of free space.  If you do see this error on backup
completion, the backup is likely to be valid, but if possible we
recommend making a new backup.
