Dear all,
on Linux an attempt to LogTo to a place that is not accessable results
in logging being deadlocked:
LogTo(); results in

LogTo: can not close the logfile at, and inability to start logging at all.


gap> LogTo("blah/blah"); # directory "blah" does not exist, no wonder...
LogTo: cannot log to blah/blah at
LOG_TO( name );
 called from
<function>( <arguments> ) called from read-eval-loop
Entering break read-eval-print loop ...
you can 'quit;' to quit to outer loop, or
you can 'return;' to continue
brk> # ^D pressed, then:
gap> LogTo();
LogTo: can not close the logfile at
gap> LogTo("blah");
#I  Already logging to blah/blah

(needless to say, the file "blah" isn't even created)

Same applies to InputLogTo.

Thanks for attention to this,
