sounds like your file don't get rotated. (laptop or whatever)
logcheck remails a file if the the inode of the file changes,
then it can no longer assume to have the same file to check
with previsou offset.
how often does that happen?
do you have a seperate dir of logcheck messages?
could you send a typical example.
what filesystem are you using? (nfs, afs,..)?
thanks for your feedback
