There are a few things about log files that I'd like some clarification 
on. Note that these remoarks apply to a server that I'm currently running 
as a proxy (on Windows NT 4.0 beta2 if that matters), but I suspect that 
the same questions apply to the non-proxy case.

First off, I notice that the writes to the log and traces files don't 
flush. This is unfortunate, especially for the traces file when your 
trying to debug.

Secondly, the date is a month off. Here is a log entry from yesterday:

  205.158.53.65 - - [24/5/1996:16:4:32 +7] "GET http://www.microsoft.com/ 
HTTP/1.0" 200 14557

Lastly, what is the proper way to shut down a server? When I use the 
Admin "exit" link it doesn't seem to kill the process. And if I just kill 
the process manually (which seems to be my only choice with the proxy, 
since I can't access any non-proxy resources) it doesn't seem to flush 
the log buffers. I also worry about other cleanup activities not 
happening if I kill the process.

Thanks in advance.
