I have a 512 shuffle myself.  I haven't had any problem since an early 1.3.x 
version of amarok that created an error whenever it overfilled the stick.  
Are you using 1.4.x?  This shouldn't be a problem.  Now, it should just stop 
on tune that is too big and report that the shuffle is full.

Also, before transferring, you can delete tunes to be transferred until you 
get the right size.

Another thing I notice, though, is that the free space projection at the 
bottom of the media player panel is often conservative.  It may say I have 50 
MB left, and after I transfer, I find that I have 60 MB.  This may be a 
problem with the one-click thing you desire, but I like the fact that it is 
conservative in its estimate.  I always find that I fit one more than it 
originally estimates.
