Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\python24\lib\logging\", line 74, in emit
  File "C:\python24\lib\logging\", line 271, in doRollover
    os.rename(self.baseFilename, dfn)
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

originally hit on W2K3 but could not see evidence as it was running as a
service with stderr not going anywhere, but deeply suspicious since it
failed right at midnight each time. 

whittled down to bare essentials, repro'd on XP running in console
window, test case will fail in 2 min when rollover is attempted

logging set up as follows:

def initlog():
    #h = logging.handlers.TimedRotatingFileHandler( LOGFILEPATH,
'MIDNIGHT', 1, 7 )
    h = logging.handlers.TimedRotatingFileHandler( LOGFILEPATH, 'M', 2, 7 )
    h.setLevel( logging.DEBUG )
    f = logging.Formatter( '%(asctime)s %(levelname)s %(message)s',
'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S' )
    h.setFormatter( f )
    logging.root.addHandler( h )
    logging.root.setLevel( logging.DEBUG )
