Log file issues?

Log file issues?
I have invoked the streamer recording feature - excellent.

As a byproduct I have relocated the log file, in order to get the recordings saved where I want them. I have used the opportunity to actually look in the log file, and I noticed that it doesn't always record restarts/rescans, and I had to shut down Minimserver totally and restart manually to get it updating again.

Then I noticed that the Windows "Date Modified" does not reflect the date of the last entry, and a file syncing utility I use cannot sync the log file because it says the file is locked. It looks like the file is being kept open by Minimserver/streamer and needs to be closed after each update.

Is there some way to achieve this?

The log file is kept open while MinimServer in running. I am not sure why you would need to sync the log file.

When you install an update and relaunch MinimServer, the log file isn't closed—it stays open and continues to be written after the relaunch. This is done intentionally to prevent the previous contents of the log from being lost and it can be useful for debugging purposes if something goes wrong during the relaunch.

I don't really need to sync it, it is just in a folder which is being synced and BTSync is moaning about it. I'll find a way to exclude it.
