just some more silly tests (i did a umount/mount between these tests so
that should flush the log):

  1000 real        0.2 user        0.0 sys         0.1
  5000 real        1.8 user        0.0 sys         0.8
 10000 real        3.8 user        0.0 sys         1.5
 20000 real        8.3 user        0.1 sys         3.1
 50000 real       25.8 user        0.2 sys         8.0
100000 real       56.5 user        0.5 sys        17.5

if you graph that, it seems pretty linear so i dont think that i am
filling up the log.  the test partition is 10G, which implies (according
to the man page) a 10M logfile.  cool eh?
