[SOLVED] Crash due to 17GB log files (WINE > /var/log/message.log)

My PC crashed yesterday for no apparent reason. On further investigation, the disk was totally full thanks to several multi-gigabyte log files (/var/log/messages.log).

The cause of this appears to be multiple messages, generated every 5 seconds or so, from Apexdc and WINE.

Jun 26 09:22:51 my-hostname apexdc.desktop[1547]: fixme:taskschd:regtasks_get_Count 0x21f8f0,0x1eddc0c: stub

As a workaround while I sort the WINE error out, I'm running an hourly cron job to clear the log file (cat /dev/null > /var/log/messages.log).

Question: Is there a way to stop WINE from logging this error to the messages.log file in the first place?

Thanks for the link. I'd actually tried something similar and it didn't appear to be working - except I then realised was trying the WINEDEBUG commands in terminal as 'su', rather than the user where the wine session/program was running erroneously. Sigh.

I'm now launching apexdc using "WINDEDEBUG=-all "C:/Program Files/ApexDC++/ApexDC-x64.exe" in a shell script, called from a startup launcher in "/home/me/.config/autostart". All debugging output logging for Apex is now successfully prevented (after a reboot).

As a bonus side effect, Apex now launches and starts up much faster than when it was being directly loaded from the autostart folder.
