This is a not-so-sporadic problem: USB mouse begins spewing errors and
these grow the syslog and daemon.log files until /var is full. At this
point, the filesystem journal and the mail system are crippled. One must
remove these two files and reboot. The bootup check will remove an inode
or so and things will play.
I would like some daemon to monitor either selected log files or the
available space and alert before this gets out of hand. At this point,
automatic execution of a script or manual deletion can be done before
its "too late."
Replace the mouse ? Or, if thats a server box with no GUI, just keep
the mouse unplugged.
That it the easiest way to cause the problem!
BTW, this rat is the umteenth this year.
ALL of the wireless ones failed in a few months (without causing the errors)
including the holy models from microsoft.
Logitech's wire mice may last two weeks with luck.
Others simply die in too short order.
Not related to this error problem, however, or ...
