when the maximum number of backup files is reached
TimedRotatingFileHandler can't delete the oldest existing file. I got
the following error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "D:\Python25\lib\logging\", line 75, in emit
  File "D:\Python25\lib\logging\", line 319, in doRollover
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified:

The reason for this error is located in the getFilesToDelete method of
the TimedRotatingFileHandler class. The result sequence of this method
contains filenames but a complete filepath is needed.

After replacing 
    result.append(os.path.join(dirName, fileName))
the problem seems to be solved
