obviously you only remove things on order of a few days old.
All usage is problematic if:
/var should never fill
/var/tmp/vi.recover should seldom be nuked
/var/mail is HIGHLY important
Solution is to throw more disk space at the problem. Or link /var/tmp to
/tmp and accept that you'll lose vi.recover over reboots. The i386 limit
of 5 devices per disk doesn't help either.
