With NetBeans 5.5 and Sun Java System App Server 9.0_01, if I open the server
log window (via right-click on the server entry in the Runtime window), it shows
the log as expected. Since the log grows without bound, I occasionally truncate
it to zero size (using >server.log on Solaris). But NetBeans doesn't notice,
and continues to show me old stuff it picked up from the old log.
Additionally, if I close the server log window and then open it again in the
same way, the IDE performs a complicated and slow dance where it scrolls through
all the old text that only it remembers before getting to the relevant text.
what is the current status of this issue?

Can reproduce in the latest IDE too. The IDE log viewer seems to be holding onto a copy of the server.log and then
appends the latest data to the old copy.
Using the clear action on the log viewer does clears the old data and only shows the latest output.
Investigating to see why the IDE does not reset its view when the server.log content or server.log is removed
this missed the cutoff for m3... is it on-track for 6.7?
v2.1/sjsas9.1 is not shipped with 6.8 or 6.9... lower priority
