I don't know which kernel is being used... Deleting one would surely help.

Good question. This is a production Mail / DNS server (using qmail and
djbdns), so I have logs in /etc (by the default run script) minimally at
100K each x10 (before they rotate out) for each of SMTP, SEND, another
SMTP, axfrdns, tinydns, dnscache, 2 rbls, and maybe one more... the SMTP
and SEND logs are at 250k each of 10... so you see how this can add up...

I am hoping that I will have seen just about the end of the bloating /
dir, but was concerned enough to write about it...  I should have planned
the layout better.
