Hi Fred,

I was afraid of that too but actually it doesn't.
The date is set when the log is started and it stays that way until its
closed. I started my log three days ago and it still uses the same name
(and the link is still good). But, should I close the log and restart it
then I will have the date issue for sure. So the symlink works but its
just a work around the issue (Robertos fix is the recommended way to do
it).
