Heh, that's because a log file doesn't necessarily become redundant when
a new one appears, only when all the transactions it refers to have been
committed and the data changes synced to disk. So there's a transition
period where it's quite reasonable to have at least two log files active
at the same time. There can easily be more than two, for example, if
you're committing a large file.
