comment cron ignores changes to /etc/crontab
The curious thing is read doesn't follow (unlike when I edit user's crontab)

comment cron ignores changes to /etc/crontab
It's true, but, from man cron: Additionally, cron checks each minute to see if its spool directory's modtime (or the modtime on /etc/crontab) has changed, and if it has, cron will then examine the modtime on all crontabs and reload those which have changed. Thus cron need not be restarted whenever a crontab file is modified. Note that the Crontab(1) command updates the modtime of the spool directory whenever it changes a crontab. mtime of /etc/crontab does change when I edit it.

It's SLES 11.3, but it's sort of a lab machine and it's not eligible for tech support

The system you log in to might not be aware of the terminal you use. If you see some weird behavior in the future, check out this document.

It might be part of solution.

Don't think so. It's not like I want to set some hard limit. Quite often some of them might need to write a large amount of data for a day or two, and it wouldn't affect the rest of developers. Managing quotas would be a hassle.

An interesting approach! I'll probably play with it, but I'm not sure it would detect all the files. On the other hand, yes, I can use a template for logrotate rules, that might work.

No, production is production and no such things are allowed there. I'm afraid that in this case I can't do much with communication, and it's not because I dislike communication.

comment df shows too much space on tmpfs
It would be allright if I had a real problem with this weird behavior. I should have double check things before asking, so let there be a comment for anyone who does something like this, but I think it's not actually an answer.

comment df shows too much space on tmpfs
Well what actually happened is the tmpfs partition was not mounted, but it was listed in mount, so df -h was reporting the usage of / instead, since it's the 'parent' partition of a directory which was supposed to be the mountpoint for tmpfs. Mount, on the other hand, lied to me: 'It is possible that files /etc/mtab and /proc/mounts don't match. The first file is based only on the mount command options, but the content of the second file also depends on the kernel and others settings'. I should have checked /proc/mounts, too.

comment df shows too much space on tmpfs
I am terribly sorry, remounting did actually help, I've just retried it just in case and all the magic is gone. Could the mods please close the question?
