Ahh. This is an usual problem.

Yes space must be check before to use it. But /var is a big puzzle
where all Linux sub system use free space to play. If it miss space on
/var how a non Linux guru will fix the problem ? There is an entry on
bugzilla about this problem.

digiKam do not ask to use /var. We delegate all to KTempDir from
KDELibs which ask to system temporary free space. This is not perfect
but it work on all tux/WinOSX.

A perfect solution will be to add a settings dedicated to use a
specific local hard drive (a SSD of course) to store temp file. This
typically settings must be shared with kipi-plugins to be homogeneous.
