...while this one corrects a long-standing error rotating expire.log


On 2000-12-05 03:48:46 Katsuhiro Kondou committed a two-line patch with the
message "delete unused OLD/expire.log.0". The patch set a variable that is
never used, and deleted a different, already truncated file. In consequence,
OLD/expire.log.0 would remain as a copy of that day's rotated log file.

This behaviour is corrected to really delete the obsolete OLD/expire.log.0
