File a bug against syslog-ng =)

The NT eventlog is very versatile, and there's a million tools out
there that will rotate, twist and turn and optionally suck every event
out of it and produce a neat report for you. For every day use, you
can right-click a log in the viewer and choose "overwrite events as
needed", "overwrite old events", "don't overwrite". If you want to
rotate the log, schedule a script that does this using eg. AT.
Example log rotate script here (2nd example):

There's a bunch of other sites that carry examples - it's basic WMI 101.

Sounds very reasonable.
Can't say I'd vote for stdout being the default on any system though :-)
