In production there's a firewall that gets in the way sometimes.   
I've wound up with multi-gigabyte log files due to some third-order  
fallout from that.  I don't blame iprod for all of those probelms.

That doesn't apply in my test environment though.  I'm doing a  
scripted upgrade from 0.6.3 which deletes the log files on both  
master and slave(s).  Everything seems stable for a while.  Then  
something happens (sometimes my fault) and it just can't/won't resync.

Anyone have an opinion on deleting the "generation" field as part of  
the dump/reload?
