in reply to Log File Rotation

The common approach to this problem is to
  1. rename log-file. Like mv file.log file.log.1. The process which holds the old file descriptor open will write to renamed file from this point.
  2. touch new log file. touch file.log or otherwise create it.
  3. inform the process. For example, send it SIGHUP or even restart it.
It is not related to perl, I believe.

[choroba]: Maybe something like this?
[choroba]: I vaguely remember we had problems with dead keys in Tk at $work - 2, but I forgot all the details
[choroba]: but it was worse on MSWin than on Linux
[choroba]: (and OSX didn't exist yet)
[choroba]: Also, I'd try starting the App with the US layout and switch to the dead keys layout later
