[Samba] log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m creates 2 logfiles per client

I wonder why 2 log files per client (log.$IP and log.$NETBIOSNAME) are
created when "log file" ist set to "/var/log/samba/log.%m".
I have tested this with Samba 3.0.14a, 3.0.13, 3.0.11, 3.0.10 and 2.2.3a.
Samba 2.2.3a was the only release which created only one log file.

Is that a bug or is there any sense in saving 2 files with exactly the
same content?

cheers, karolin
