*********************

Bug Description:
Whenever I close down Newsleecher Windows reports the usual "The application has encountered an error and needs to close"-Exception.


Propable Cause:
I have set NL to keep the logfile even after restarts. Since there seems to be no internal "maximum size" for the logfile, over time it grew to be around 101 MB.

It seems that the size of the logfile causes NL to crash when shutting down (while flushing the log contents to the disk?), as the crashing stopped as soon as I deleted the old log and allowed NL to start off fresh.


Suggested Resolutions:
- (suprise!) Check what causes the actual crash and fix the problem
- Implement an internal hard limit for log file sizes that causes the file to be cleared
- If the above solution is not available: Notify the user if the log file grows too big (>5-10 MB?)
