  rsyslog eats CPU and generates a very large log file

Status in “rsyslog” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I had a notice that my root was almost full, so I checked out what was
  taking it.

  rsyslog was taking 100% of my CPU and had generated a log file over
  2.4GB, which I had to delete.  It continued, and I had to stop the
  rsyslog service.
