    I had two problems like this the past month. The first problem was with exim error log filling to 3-4GB a day due to a bad spamassasin rule.

    The other was /var/spool/exim/scan/ having so many sub directories in it the server could not correctly calculate disc usage. It would go from 34% (var) to 100% in 3 days. After a reboot, would drop back to 34%. Literally thousands of directories like this: 1HFhMK-0002M6-Bm/

    Only happened on that server, which also is the only server with rbuilder or "r" something (don't remember at the moment) theme and custom spamassasin setup.

    Deleting the subdirectories, and the bad couple of rules ended the problem.
