Thanks Jeroen, this was the last issue we ran into when doing restore 
tests on systems with less diskspace than the original.

I do think we need to add the 'df -h' output somewhere in /var/lib/rear of 
the rescue image for cases where one needs to manually reduce partitions 
or LVM containers. Without any feedback about how much diskspace is used 
by the backup, one cannot intelligibly make good decisions without 
restarting Rear a few times by trial-and-error.

Maybe the menu should provide an option to 'View the original diskspace 
usage (df -h output)' as well ?

Despite having done the roll-out, I think these two items justify 
retesting and redistributing a newer version.
