i have my markerline date format as:

Mon Apr 03/2006 07:50:37

which is only 24 char. that means over 50 char to display a
pathname/file

my longest logfile path/filename is:

/cygdrive/r/logs/fmail.log

about half of the space left over.

you could always had a quick check to see that the combined filename
and date/time fit in the markerline, and if now, remove the path
information. 

so instead of this:

-----/cygdrive/r/logs/fmail.log-----Mon Apr 03/2006 07:50:37----------

you could have this

-------------------------fmail.log-----Mon Apr 03/2006 07:50:37-------
