So, without it it apparently creates sparse files then ;-)
Nevertheless, I find the nature of the problem somewhat suprising. The
formatting of /boot should be the first thing done after creating the
partitions. The "running out of space" should only happen when it has
formatted / and tries to install software that needs more than those 3,9
GB on it.
