That is not possible, as the file descriptor for this file is
inherited by all the programs, and they will not use a new file if you
try to move away the old file and start on a new.  The only time this
file descriptor is "renewed" is when a user log in.

Report bugs against the programs producing lots of output, and ask the
developer to quiet it down.
