On one of my FreeBSD 2.2-STABLE systems, we've found that one of our
cgi-heavy customers has problems if we let their logs grow to more than
64M. I haven't found a reason for it (haven't really tried, to tell the
truth). But we worked around the problem by handling their log in
/etc/newsyslog.conf to auto-rotate their log at about the 56M mark.
