Possible bug in tail function
Posted: Mon Jul 11, 2016 3:49 am
Charles, I noticed something this weekend that feels buggish. I have a long running batch file that invokes (multiple times) a load program for data. I have the output for each load command appended to a log file. I am viewing this log file with V, and I have the tail function enabled to keep track of where I'm at in this string of commands. It would appear that if I minimize this window for some time and then restore it, the viewer window is frozen (i.e. no longer updated) at the same point it was at when the window was minimized. If I then toggle the tail function off and then on again, it correctly finds the current end of the file and keeps updating as the file continues to grow, unless the window is minimized and then restored again, etc. Would this behavior be incorrect, and, if so, have you ever heard of it before? I'm thinking that the minimized window has to have at least one update to the file occur while it is minimized to trigger the symptom.
