Hi Miguel,

Thanks for the reply.  I tried these changing these two settings and it
has not made a difference for us.

One interesting observation I have made is that the logs are only being
flooded from a portion of our Windows 7 machines.  This has me really
puzzled -- I have built them all following the same steps and using the
same software.  Go figure.
