There are several problems where user's logs files have filled up for various
reasons, it would be a good thing if this could be avoided.  

(I know, there are various workarounds that can be implemented when a problem, 
usually a config problem, is indentified).  But it would avoid a number of 
servers needlessly failing.  (FWIW I am regularly suffering such symptoms in 
my test environment, but I believe it is a problem with a my config, so I'll 
do more testing before posting my problem about the following message which 
is only stoppable through a reinit.cmd)

When an item is written to an error log, the last and 2nd last written entry should be checked.
If this error is the same, a 'special' entry should be written, saying last msg repeated n
This line could then be updated everytime the message is immediately repeated.
Such an entry would stop logs from over-flowing with the same message looped.
