Does this mean you automagically install updates? (I recommend NEVER to do 
that automagical!) Do you use only the old ones provided by the distro 
itself? Or are you using more recent ones from another source?

Come to think of it which logwatch version are you running? To the best of 
my knowledge logwatch has been added to the daily crontab jobs ages ago.
