MOSS logs are filled with repetitive messages & take up space

The 12\logs on the server(one of WFE's only) are being filled up with messages like this:
The logs are taking around 60+ GB space for a single day.

OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0704)                   	0x071C	Windows SharePoint Services   	Timer                         	5uuf	Monitorable	The previous instance of the timer job 'Application Server Timer Job', id '{19C28EEA-26CC-4784-9B09-C7540F2C0F3C}' for service '{03DC0298-0924-459E-823F-A00776FAFE50}' is still running, so the current instance will be skipped.  Consider increasing the interval between jobs.	
Its happening for the timer jobs : 'Config Refresh', 'Scheduled Approval', 'Workflow', 'Immediate Alerts', 'Variations Propagate Site Job Definition', etc.
Also, all the jobs on the "Timer Job Definitions"  of Central Admin are success.
Platform: Moss 2007 on Win 2008 R2

have you looked at how long these jobs are taking to run? looks like there is a overlap - "Consider increasing the interval between jobs"

Set to 4 min using the following command, but no luck.
stsadm -o setproperty -pn job-config-refresh -pv "Every 4 minutes between 0 and 59"

No luck? Meaning u couldn't set the command or it didn't help solve the problem?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Its now set to 4 min, but that didn't help solve the problem. The logs are still growing in size with repititive messages.

The logs are really huge up to 1-4GB each file.  In the smallest log file that i could open, i see these messages repeatedly.

You didn't answer my question >> how long does the job take to complete?

All these jobs are admin timer jobs and not ssp timer jobs. I'm not able to see any information that states the job is complete in the logs.

When I tried to delete those specific jobs using stsadm -o deleteconfigurationobject, the operation was successful, but the jobs restarted with different id.
