10GB /var/log/messages.log

Yesterday, after signing one message using my CryptoStick (OpenPGP card V2 +
USB reader) I filled up my /var/log/messages.log with 10GB (that's a lot) of
the same exact message:

Nov 20 21:15:00 localhost pcscd: ccid_usb.c:613:WriteUSB() write failed
(2/3): -9 Success

In fact it was only 10GB because I didn't have any more space left on this
partition. I also had /var/log/everything.log and /var/log/user.log with the
same content.

The line just before was:
Nov 20 21:13:12 localhost kernel: usb 2-1.2: new full speed USB device using
ehci_hcd and address 3

The only thing I remember is that I probably have removed the drive at some

Has someone seen this behavior before?
