[tahoe-dev] UnhappinessError during renew

Zooko, I think I understand the message as is (but yes, the meaning is
obfuscated a little :). I only care that one failure in renewal process shut
down it completely. Say I have one big file (10GB) and thousands of small
files. When uploading of one big share failed because there is not enough
place for it, it does not mean that other 1kB files cannot be renewed.

Currently repair stopped after 14000 checks, but I have (maybe I had) over
57000 files in grid...

Full error mesage is here (it's from volunteergrid):

[Failure instance: Traceback: <class
'allmydata.interfaces.UploadUnhappinessError'>: shares could be placed on
only 3 server(s) such that any 1 of them have enough shares to recover the
file, but we were asked to place shares on at least 7 such servers. (placed
all 3 shares, want to place shares on at least 7 servers such that any 1 of
them have enough shares to recover the file, sent 4 queries to 4 peers, 3
queries placed some shares, 1 placed none (of which 1 placed none due to the
server being full and 0 placed none due to an error))
