 Several times, the win2003 DomU has managed to lock up the entire
 machine by filling the (admittedly tight) space in the Dom0 file

 it logs is large amount of whitespace with a few dots and form feeds
 - it looks like a repeated attempt at an ascii screenshot from the
 Windows screen.

 Since these logfiles are created per-process, management is
 difficult, especially for long-running sessions which don't seem to
 let go of their files.

 Does anyone know of a way not to let a DomU log to those files?

I don't know a way to avoid it, but my files are definitively small.
Most are less than 512 bytes.

Well, most of them are too, here, but:

# ls -lS qemu* | head

-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      650 Mar  4 12:00 qemu-dm.6634.log

The file qemu-dm.14072.log e.g. starts with

domid: 32
qemu: the number of cpus is 1

and then tons of whitespace.

What does ps axuww |grep qemu shows are parameters?
