[logback-user] Logback not rolling

Hmm, I have rolled my own roll-on-startup policy but that is not, as 
written compatible with a roll-by-day setup, as it uses different file 
naming conventions.  I use it for personal debugging but not in 
production.  I'm not sure it's possible to combine the two in a single 
policy, if in fact, the default time-based policy does NOT roll on 
startup the app wasn't running at the boundary crossing.

Can I get a definitive answer on whether the default time-based policy 
will roll on startup if the application wasn't running at the boundary
