This change can make big builds much slower. For example, in this build, run
after about a day's interval from the previous build and on a big codebase,
there were 600+ files changed, which is pretty normal:
The logging, even against a local repository, took over half an hour of
server-crushing load, which is far longer than it would have taken in earlier
versions of Hudson.
If this bug was only reported for Windows users (and I have never come across
such a problem on Linux), can we please disable it (or make the limit much
higher) for non-Windows platforms? The rest of us should not have to pay for
silly limitations in Win32.
