Heh, I've made that mistake before :-)

Dear Gale,

HP530 laptop, Win7 ultimate 32bit, Audacity 1.3.12 beta(unicode)

I accidentally allowed Audacity to record (from USB input) until the
hard drive was full.  Audacity initially stopped gracefully, saying
"disk full".  But when I clicked to move the trace along the screen,
Audacity crashed horribly!

It popped up a window "Error - ..... at address ....", and then
another, and then another, endlessly and unstoppably all over the
screen, ignoring all key-presses and mouse-clicks.

Fortunately I was able via CTL-ALT-DEL to enter Task Manager, which
showed Audacity progressively filling up my 1GB of RAM very quickly.
I was able to cancel the Audacity process just in time!

Impressively, after rebooting and making some HDD space, I was able to
run Audacity and recover the file, and save it.

Yours,  Tony

Thank heavens for Linux
