If you just cleaned out /var try creating a small file to re-sync the
filesystem. I've had a similar issue in the past after freeing up space.

you might try dropping into single user mode and then unmounting the
volume and running fsck against it.
kill 1
umount /var
fsck /var

200 some odd megs is a fair amount to go missing.
