Description Felix Yan 2012-10-04 10:50:23 UTC
This seems a different bug than #54623.

If I use journalctl -f in terminal, when new logs coming too fast (for example, rtkit with a wine directx programs, which will produce per-user limit exceeded logs several times per second), it stops sometimes and no new logs are shown.

If I use journalctl (without -f) and hit shift-G again and again, no such problem exists (even if the -f one is currently blocking).

Using systemd 194.
