Logger: Can not rotate (log shifting failed. closed stream)
If I configure a Logger to rotate, by the time the logger is supposed to do the first rotation, it creates the new log file, but then hangs. When I abort the program using Control-C, I get an infinite series of error messages saying
log shifting failed. closed stream
You can reproduce the error, if you run the attached example program on Windows (it could be a platform issue). The only prerequisite is that a subdirectory 'logs' must exist below the working directory.
I'm reporting error for the Cygwin version of Ruby. However, I found the nearly identical error also with JRuby 1.9.3, which suggests that the bug is likely in the Ruby stdlib code, and not in the specific port (i.e. Cygwin vs. JRuby). The main difference between the behaviour of the bug in Cygwin Ruby vs. JRuby is that aborting the program on JRuby does not produced the "log shifting...." error message.
