Mandrake 9.2 logout fills disk with crash files
I have a user account with root privileges (carried over from an upgrade from version 9.1) that when I log out it fills the disk with thousands of 1k crash* files until the disk is full in the home directory. The home directory is /home/name. Running fully patched 9.2 version. When you try to log back in you get the error no file space in home directory. Fortunately I have the root directory on a different disk drive and use it to clean out the crash files. Changing the permissions and account of the user have no effect. I created another user on the same drive and it works fine as does the root account.
What is causing this and can it be fixed?
I am experienced at HPUX but newbie to Linux
