Do you rotate your logfiles with newsyslog or something similar without
restarting the ejabberd? EJabberd might not reopen the logfile.

So ejabber will continue to write to the rotated file. When the logfile is
finally deleted the Directory entry for this file goes away but the file still
exists and grows on.

Had this problem with innd some times ago.
