When the file /var/lib/logrotate.status contains a file name with a space
in it,
logrotate quits with an error.
example:
     /var/log/samba/log.virtual pc 2000-7-14

The filename was actually "/var/log/samba/log.virtual pc". The only reason
this came
up for me is that someone on a mac named their virtual pc "virtual pc" and
then
samba picked it up with it's logs.
