Akira, thank you for the recomendation, I've opened *.log by IE for the same reason.
Now todos works well, although still I think the line-endings in Win implementation should be \r\n.

BTW Is it possible to increase the line length limit for *.log files, or remove limit completely and leave it on viewers line wrap option?
