Thanks, but it represents a security risk at least in the sense of
Denial of Service: filling the log disk space means not only some
daemons could crash, stop, or just cry it loud, but also that root
must log-in.
By the way, I proposed such approach because that would be what I
would do in the same situation, without any clue of a better solution.
Of course, the script/program/whatever must be rock solid and carefully tested.
