Hi Shri

Is this after using the new sarge d-i? I've experienced the same problem
and had to delete these two log files to get packages installed.  This
was on a test system where only /home and swap are on separate
partitions, whereas my production system has a separate /var
partition.  Nevertheless, it would seem that the new d-i is creating
huge versions of these two logs (>1G each in the first day or so).
