Description

When it turned midnight tonight, Chatzilla told me:

	[INFO]	Closing log file <file:///home/myk/.chatzilla/.../chatzilla/logs/moznet/channels/%23bonecho.2006-09-13.log>.
	<beltzner>	vegas, even
	[INFO]	Now logging to <file:///home/myk/.chatzilla/.../chatzilla/logs/moznet/channels/%23bonecho.2006-09-14.log>.

So I thought it had failed to log beltzner's remark.  But actually it logged it to the new log file, which starts:

[09/14/2006 12:00 AM] [INFO] Now logging to <file:///home/myk/.chatzilla/.../chatzilla/logs/moznet/channels/%23bonecho.2006-09-14.log>.
[09/14/2006 12:00 AM] <beltzner> vegas, even

Seems like Chatzilla should display the INFO message in the same order it writes the lines to the log file.  Otherwise users may think that the log files missed the comment(s) that appear between the two INFO messages.

In the latest release, you don't get either of these messages for logfile wrapping, as far as I'm aware. The same actually goes for the 1.8 branch as well:


http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla1.8/source/extensions/irc/xul/content/static.js#4588 (and further)

As well as:
http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla1.8/source/extensions/irc/xul/content/static.js#4568

So basically, neither message gets displayed if we're wrapping into a new logfile. You should update your ChatZilla :-)

Indeed, the new version of Chatzilla shows no such messages.  Thanks for the info!
