Problem description

There is a problem with logrotate where it continually archives the files in /var/log/news and /var/log/mail whether they are already archived or not. Because of this, the archives are never removed and can cause the device to fill up. This update corrects this problem. Update: While the logrotate package helped with the problem, it did not entirely fix it. This updated sysklogd package is also required to eliminate the problem entirely. Please reference MDKSA-2000:050-1 for more information on upgrading sysklogd from a security standpoint.
