Description Karl Berry 1999-01-06 08:29:59 EST
i created an entry in /etc/logrotate.conf like this:
/var/log/named {}

logrotate dumped core, as i found out from logrotate -d.
(from cron i got a message containing just `error:'.)
it seems there must be a newline after the {.
ok (although unnecessarily verbose), but still shouldn't
