Nice to hear that someone else instead of me is using this
functionality. ;-) (I'm the one who wrote it.)

The old version of this patch is working with a current version. I
uploaded a zip file to my website again (I think the old entry on SF is
already closed):
http://www.uwe-freese.de/download/ajb_logging_patch.zip

Things that should be changed *if* this logging function is added to
cvs:

(1) By now, it makes a log entry every time it reads a file. E.g. if
    a file is read 4 times (4 times filling the buffer), there are four
    entries. Instead, it sould make only one entry.
    This could be changed by checking if it's the same filename in
    logentry_playback(char *trackname).

(2) And there should be a menu entry "Logging On/Off", of course.

Björn: If you think the patch should be in cvs now, I could add it to
CVS and change (1). It would be nice if you or someone else could add
(2) then, because I'm not so familiar with the menu stuff.

Bye, Uwe.
