Hi Michael,

thanks a lot for your patch! You are right about the memory buffer, and
I'd like to always output a log file (in a temporary location) anyway in
the future. Unfortunately Carl-Daniel does not really like the idea at
all... so we'll have to convince him over time of the patch's
usefulness and it won't be committed soonish.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
