OK, I'm not a file-access guru but couldn't that affect performance if the
usertrack file is on the order of a GB?

Will do this.

I do both of these nightly in a cron job, so you suspect wrong ;)  But thanks
for the tips.  I was only not rotating usertrack since I thought perhaps it was
used in some of the reporting and shouldn't be rotated.

So... it isn't possible to turn off logging to usertrack?  Any tips on where I
could look in the code to comment out the line/routine that does the logging?
