The problem is the download manager log does not have an option to either
automaticly delete the log file on exit or every X days, and this causes the log
file to grow to very size, and eventauly slow down the GUI dialogs that allow
saving and statusing a download. We need and option for the system to
automatically clear this file so the user does not have to remember to clear
this out.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save 500 to 1000 files without clearing the download log
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Very slow GUI for save and status downloading of files

Expected Results:  
The download log should have never grown to that ponderous size and cause that
problem in the first place.
