Description of problem:
I noticed the problem by repeated messages little space on the system. When doing a search in baobab, I noticed that in the log folder (var / log) had a size of 20 GB (up to the system).
I used fedora since version 14, and is the first time I see something like this happens, so it must be a mistake.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 19 beta
GNOME 3.8.2

How reproducible:

Actual results:
Repeated messages of low disk space and possible use of the system for lack of space.

Expected results:
Automatic washing device log (weighing no 8 GB each).

Additional info:
→ I wanted to send back the messages file from folder var/log, but weighs 5 GB.
→ It might be more helpful if I could indicate as sending more technical reports

Wrong component, LogService is a specific service for distributed computing applications build with diet (which ironically doesn't write anything in /var/log or elsewere).

To help bug triagers, you may want to specify largest log files and their current sizes. It's probably a problem of logs configuration in another service but i (or bug triagers) can't tell if you don't more details.
