Well, whatever. Personally I find it better to have all such
messages in one log file (whatever name it may have), because
otherwise I'd have to consult several files to see the actual
sequence of messages that have been generated.

But if others like to spread all log messages into various files,
so be it. The problem in such cases is that before being able
to get to the actual problem, there are discussions about where
all the log messages might be... ;-)
