This was exactly what was going on. cron was trying to send mail (MAILTO="" 
was NOT part of my crontab file) and thus these things were accumulating in my 
/var/spool/exim4 folder)
The solution was to get rid of all those file, put MAILTO="" in my crontab 
(because I don't want it to mail) and to uninstall exim4 (because I don't want 
an MTA on this box)

There's also this to find out where your inodes have gone:
$> du -s --inodes /*
