IM displays log file content incorrectly, as it tries to read the eof character. Usually it is treated as newline. Because IM thinks that eof is a character it shows all info from the file shifted on one char. E.g.:

mysql> show mysqld log general 1;
| Log  |

How to repeat:
issue the above command

Suggested fix:
Don't read eof to the buffer.

IM displays newline as it should, since it is actually present in the file. I was confused by
vi, which doesn't show the last newline :)
