mv does incomplete move without warning

Hi, I'm using RedHat Linux 7.3 with
$> rpm -q fileutils 

Today I moved a file from an ext3-partition to a fat32 one. The Problem
was that there wasn't enough diskspace on the fat32-partition. `mv'
moved it, truncated the file and didn't signal any errors. Of course,
it deleted the file from my ext3-partition ;-(.

I have found this thread in geocrawler, but it only says something
about NFS, not fat32 ...


So, is this a bug or a "feature"? Or can't you simply do anything
about it because of the partition being fat32?

If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice
as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?
