Summary: Gaim Debug window auto-clear and auto-save

Initial Comment:
Maybe it would help while trying to debug strange
behavour to have the Debug window open 24/7 and in such
a way that it automatically saves the contents of the
last 24 hours to a file. And also it would be also
useful to have a auto-clear option, that stips messages
in this window that are older than 1 hour or sth. The
problem is, that I tryed to leave the Debug window open
for half the day and this forced my computer on the
knees - it ate up all the memory (actually it was
~300mb) and the OS started using virtual memory on the
hard drive.

Merry Christmas everybody.

(gaim-2.0.0beta1-debug, Windows XP SP2)

So, if anyone else reads this he might find it useful to
have such a "solution" for auto-save of debugging information:

Just simply start gaim with (not sure if normal gaim build
also writes so much to stdout; at least in gaim2.0.0-beta2
it works fine):
  gaim -d > gaim-debug.log

And then you don't need to have the auto-clear option etc,
just a powerful text editor that doesn't load the whole file
in memory at once (can be a problem).
