Description of problem:
The default state file is mentioned twice within the man page, but each reference talks about a different file location.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man logrotate
2. search for "te/status"
The man claims that default state file is /var/lib/logrotate/status or /var/lib/logrotate.status .
Man page claims that default state file is always /var/lib/logrotate.status .
I think there are more typos in the logrotate manual page. We should fix them

fixed in logrotate-3.7.1-11.RHEL4
