Thanks.  That seemed to work!  It was not a space issue though, because 
there is plenty of space free (over 100GB and my file is not THAT 
big!).  I can only imagine it is some sort of permissions thing but it 
is not obvious what/why.  It still fails when run from QGIS though (an 
empty file is created here with no error).
