Philip, do you use a scheduled CMD file to gracefully kill the server, rotate 
the logs, and then restart the server?  Given that rumor has it that piping is 
broken in 2.2.4, it seems something like that is the only way to do it right 
now, eh?  If what you're using contains no trade secrets, I'd be very curious to 
see exactly what you're using, so I can use it as boilerplate for my own 
solution.  I wonder if it could also be accomplished via a WSH file instead, and 
whether that would provide extra flexibility or benefits?

Mark
