No, running steady for 11 hours with logging enabled (no referrerer), and
logs being deleted every 5 minutes by a cron job

it is also possible that apache will not log malformed referrer headers
exactly like they arrive, so this can be pointless. for this we probably
need to run tcpdump on a forwardind computer sitting before the tux server,
and capture the incoming traffic only - these should be only the http
requests, so a strong machine can probably handle that. unfortunatelly, i
don't have such setup - i run iptables on the tux server itself ... can
anybody help testing this ?
