I am not familiar with OLC really but I can almost guarentee you that if
you use fflush after every write to the logs those errors will show up,
because when the mud crashes whatever is in the buffers (not written yet)
is lost. This however may not be appropiate for a production version of the
mud because of the constand IO it will cause.
