Summary: qrunner eat my disk inodes and kills my machine!

Initial Comment:
One of the mailman crontab scripts (I think qrunner) has 
been writing a new log file every minute since I installed 
mailman 4 months ago. 400,000 separate logfiles later, 
my /var partition fills up with the inodes of these empty 
files effectively disabling most of my favourite services.

Nasty. Currently taking over 5 hours to clean up /var. I 
have disabled the mailman crontab.

I'm using version 2.0.9-1 (RedHat RPM). Is this fixed in 
subsequent versions? Something like appending to an 
existing logfile would be nice.

Anyone else using mailman, I'd advise giving your system 
a periodic 'df -i' just in case this miserable fate befalls 
you too.

You don't say what OS version you're using, although I'll assume 
it's some older RedHat variant.  First, you should upgrade from 
2.0.9 anyway, either to 2.0.13 or to 2.1.2 (my recommendation).  
I run both 2.0.x and 2.1 systems for years on RedHat 7.3 and 9 
and have never seen this.
