Log files can grow very large [1], up to the point where they fill up / or /var with potentially disastrous results.

The MythTV packages use logrotate to rotate log files. While logrotate can rotate files based on their size, it is only run daily.

I suggest that mythtv-common should depend on a more sane log rotation utility. I'll try to find some alternatives.
