I have a troubling problem that I can't seem to figure out.  For the past week my /var has been keep filling up on me, mostly because I have a 500MB /var partition and it says that 452MB of it is used but only 772K is available.  For one I did a du -sh /var and I'm only taking up 5.9MB in the var directory and I tried adding up space elsewhere to see if the space is going anywhere else but it's still not adding up.  And Even if I have 452MB used, which I don't, I should still have like 48MB left to use.  Ideas on what's going on here?

Please send replies to this address, I'm not sure if I'm still subscribed to this list.
