Are you sure you want to allow log files to grow without limit?  Without 
  some kind of notification or error message, the log file could have 
grown to fill up the entire partition.  I think a 2 gig limit is more 
than reasonable for a log file limit.  If it gets that big, there is 
likely something wrong or misconfigured anyway.
