comment “bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device”
Does the documentation say anything useful? - I do not know offhand. The mytmp directory should be on a device with LOT of free space, more than 10GB.

Try setting the environment variable TMPDIR to point to another directory on another device with lots of space. Set permissions on the directory with chmod 1777 [path to dir/dirname]

You must have security problems that transcend this one, because your having a lot of sudo'ed users can be indicative of other problems. Setup a script that immediately forks a child. The child sleeps n seconds. It then does a kill -15 $PPID (or whatever is SIGTERM on your system) and exits.

comment Why is this empty directory 3.5MB?
That is correct. However ufs does have the problem as do others. While this question is strictly ext4, the problem is ubiquitous so I mentioned it.
