I may have found the issue. I was also running MOL and after checking
out the ubuntu volume from OS X I found that /var/log was a 4.8 GB hog!
The MOL recent log was 3.8GB
so I trashed it and now the volume has that much free space. Do I need
any of the log files for any other reason that to check things out?
They are accumulating.
