In Red Hat 8.0 I'm seeing intermittent failures of httpd.  Most of the time it
is related to the 2GB limit, but sometimes it isn't.

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-09-08 15:28:20 UTC
Deferring this for Cambridge until it's supported upstream.  The Taroon httpd
package has a patch to allow >2gb access logs BTW.
