If newsyslog for a collection of logfiles takes too long, this might happen:

bzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out.  Possible reason follows.               
bzip2: No such file or directory                                                
        Input file = /var/log/security.0, output file = /var/log/security.0     
newsyslog: `bzip2 -f /var/log/security.0' terminated with a non-zero status     

reason: while bzip2 tries to compress the logfile, the files are
rotated around and newsyslog or bzip2 get confused.
