Description Rich Megginson 2013-09-27 19:37:55 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Not sure why, but using logconv.pl -V with DB_File creates temporary DB files in /var/tmp called BDBxxxxx.  These can grow to be very, very large.  They need to go in the -D $dataLocation directory.
