Have you had a crash while working on a large file? Also, there are
session logs in there which can get big sometimes, especially if you
don't clean out /tmp very often. You can set lifetimes on the contents
in yast>system>sysconfig - I have mine emptied at boot and have never
yet had a problem, although it depends how you use it of course so YMMV
