Description Kim Lux 2004-11-11 18:06:43 UTC
Description of problem: 
Request that System Log screen doesn't go to top every time a new 
event is added. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Log Viewer 0.9.11

 A graphical interface for watching log files 
How reproducible: 
All the time. 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Open system-logviewer 
2. Scroll down to the bottom of the list to see the last entry.  
3. System generates a message.  View window goes to the top of 
Actual results: 
User is looking at the first item in the list.  
Expected results: 
It would be nice if the list stayed on the last item or went to the 
new item.  Maybe a user option is needed to scroll list or not scroll 
list.  If one is working on a busy machine, it is almost impossible 
to look at anything in the middle of the list because it keeps going 
to the top of the list and then you have to refind your position.  
Additional info: 
I like the utility a lot.  I used to have several log files open at 
once in multiple editors and they didn't update while you were 
watching them.  system-logviewer is much, much nicer.  
I'd also like a button to clear the log file, but I guess I can do 
that manually.
