A rather bizzare problem showed up at the end of March. I am using Logrotate
with my RedHat 4.1 distribution, and it seems to work quite nicely.
At the end of March, a number of files ended up with dates in the status file
of 3-31-97, which was then followed by error messages complaining about an
illegal date. This killed logrotate cold.
It was easy to fix - I updated the dates to mid-april, and ran logortate
again. We are now happy, and no problems have come up. I am merely a tad
surprised that others did not have this problem, if it is an actual problem,
rather than pilot error. I have not fiddled with the system much beyond
changing a few things to daily updates and such.
