I'm favorable to refactoring the logging a bit to avoid unnecessary
method calls and string concatenation, etc... but it's not a bit of
String concatenation that makes VM run out of memory. Garbage
collection does work, and gets rid of these string, before running out
of memory (as per JVM spec). If there are memory leaks, lets find and
address them, rather than kludging the code IMHO. --DD
