Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

Not a bug but a dearly lacking feature:

gnome-system-log should have an option/preference to automatically jump to the tail of the opened log file.

I am doing quite a lot of 'log viewing' lately, and it's darned annoying, when switching from one log to another
and back, to have to hand-scroll all the way down to the tail of the log file each time.
