... which can't work because it will overwrite the logfile on server start, and thus will overwrite the very latest logfile when performing multiple restarts. We had discussions how to identify a logfile's start time, and agreed that the file's creation/modification time can *not* be used for that. That's why the name has a fixed and well-known timestamp format.
