Piped logs are currently effectively broken on Windows, due to the  
way we do or don't pass valid file descriptors to the called process  
for stdout and stderr.  Others more knowledgeable than myself can  
elucidate on this more eloquently than I can.

We're trying to fix it, but that hasn't happened so far.  If you want  
to rotate your log files, the best approach is currently to rename  
them and then send your httpd service a restart signal using

\path\to\httpd -n Apache2 -k restart

with the name of the Windows Service as argument to the -n  
parameter.  You can script this in any language that pleases you, and  
run it periodically in the Windows Scripting Host.

I haven't reviewed mod_security to this extent but does it use the  
Apache logging APIs?  Or does it do its own thing?
