I am developing on Windows XP SP2 but it would be deployed on Windows
Server 08. Java version is 1.6.0, _20 or higher. I downloaded the
latest common-io yesterday, commons-io-2.0.1.

It seems the Tailer is correctly handling the file roll over without missing any lines but
log4j is no longer creating the .1 etc back-up files. I suspect it is a conflict between with
how Tailer has opened the file and how log4j created backups.
