Tracker's "Low Space" warning has bizarre criteria.

I notice, looking through the code, that Tracker only warns that a volume is running critically low on space if it's got <20 MB free AND that <20MB is <10% of the disk's capacity. I stumbled across this when I was looking at a volume (ext2) with 0.1% free disk space (about 100MB out of 100GB), and I considered this to be a very low disk space condition.
I've attached a (very simple) patch to rectify the situation (make the criteria a hard 9%-or-lower (<10%)), but might not fully understand the reasoning behind the original criteria.
