Currently there is no way to dismiss the modal "Journal full" dialog that appears when the Journal is out of space. The user is forced to go to the Journal.
Then, when reaching the Journal, the dialog appears redundantly on top of the Journal itself.
If the user is unable to fix the problem using the Journal (say the file system filled up some other way), it becomes impossible to open a Terminal activity to fix the problem, without being forced back into the Journal.
1) There should be a way to close the dialog without going to the Journal.
2) When the Journal is active, the dialog should be suppressed, and instead an Alert should indicate that the Journal is almost full, with extra details like percentage remaining.
3) In my opinion, Journal Full should not be a modal dialog at all, but a notification similar to the way Chat and IRC notify you when you have a new message. As you can continue to use Sugar, this feels like an abuse of a modal dialog.
