There's one other factor -- check to make sure that you haven't hit
the maximum file size limitations of your operating system.
For example, many OSes can't handle files larger than 2GB, and if
you're running a busy mail server or you haven't rotated the log file
in a long time, it might be easy to exceed this limit.
