Yes indeedy ... that could be doing it.  They have gotten a tad large 
haven't they.  Guess I forgot to copy of the log rolling script when I 
moved it to the new server:

# ls -l *log
-rw-r--r--    1 ptp      ptp        472135 Dec 12 08:13 editlog
-rw-r--r--    1 ptp      ptp       4898233 Dec 12 11:39 err_log
-rw-r--r--    1 ptp      ptp     120108212 Dec 12 11:44 event.log

Thanks Jürgen, I've rotated them and hopefully that'll solve the problem.
