> When decreasing the MaxSizeRollBackups parameter at runtime.
> the log4net is not deleting older files that has already written.
> This means that if i change the MaxSizeRollBackups parameter repeadetly, i can reach
to very large number of old log files.
> reconstruct scenario
> ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
> set number of backups to 10 files. wait till you have 10 files.
> decrease number of backups to 2. 
> result- 10 files will remain at disk. 8 files will never be deleted, 2 files will stay
as retention.
> expected - only 2 files will remain in disk.
