I did not know that and thank you for pointing it out. Luckily I have
all my logs stored in non-symlinked folders. I should have mentioned
that in that initial recommendation for symlinked binaries - it's just
for the binaries. If I did that for the logs as well then every time
there was a new version I'd have to move the logs... to avoid that I
created data folder outside of MRTG's binary path. Problem(s) averted.

Thanks and Regards,
