logwatch 4.3.2 not cleaning up /tmp

    Hi All,

    We're running logwatch 4.3.2 on our plesk server and all of a sudden logwatch doesn't seem to be cleaning up after itself. We had to go in and manually delete the logwatch file from /tmp. With /tmp only being 95M and the logwatch file filling this up, customer's scripts and database can't write to /tmp any more.

    Any suggestions on why logwatch is not cleaning up after itself?

    Currently running Plesk 8.2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 6).

    [root@plesk2 cron.daily]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/tmpMnt 95M 339K 90M 1% /tmp

    [root@plesk2 tmp]# du -h
    95M ./logwatch.yao16972
    1.0K ./hsperfdata_tomcat4
    95M .

    [root@plesk2 tmp]# ls -lah ./logwatch.yao16972
    total 95M
