Very strange. On Monday, I saw an empty log message and even empty
author. Today, they're both there, exactly the way they should be.

I committed a change this morning to the same server, same repository
(different directory in the repository, however), with a 521-character
message which included a linebreak. Line 1 was 35 characters, line 2
485 characters. The log showed correctly, immediately.

I'm glad my data isn't gone forever, I'm just curious now as to what
happened. I guess I'll just keep watching to see if it happens again.
