Sorry, but from my perspective it *is* an optimal configuration.

I provide services for "web developers". As part of that service
I provide each with their own error_log and access_log that is
*current*. Not processed 24 hours or even an hour later.

An "exploder" has been suggested which could possibly help this
situation, but adds a potential problem if this extra logging
process dies, which is not currently an issue.

I've suggested that we open and close the error_log for each
access. This would *help* the situation but obviously not
solve it.

I like the idea of getting Sun to fix this... :-)
