Comment 1 Erik Troan 2000-07-31 12:53:29 EDT
Is it generating an .rpmsave file that you're having to restore? How many times
has this
happened? Occasionally (well, twice) we've had to change the logrotate file in a
that made this happen (upgrading to 6.2 and 6.0 would have given this behavior),
so if that's
when you saw it, it's a feature, not a bug :-( Specifically, we removed lastlog
from rotation and 
fixed the permission of wtmp on rotation.

If you've seen this behavior more prevalently then this, please reopen the bug.
