Can anyone tell me what is supposed to be rotating (and cleaning Xorg

I experienced something similar in my Wheezy system... IIRC it happened
when I was testing different settings in "xorg.conf" and the X server
crashed. I manually removed the "extra" log files and until now I have
not experienced the problem again.

Greetings,


I should have looked at the dates. All of them were for the 13 may!

I just deleted them

Ditto here, but 264 logs all between 2012-06-14 18:50:54 and
2012-06-14 18:52:08. IIRC, after an upgrade of some xorg related
package, the display froze and I couldn't do anything. I suspect
that gdm3 tried to restart X, which almost immediately crashed,
and tried again and again, until I rebooted the machine. This
problem has already occurred in the past. I think this was that:

(closed, because unreproducible).
