Why does DDMS sometimes only show one line of logs?

 ... usually happens after a force close. Instead of showing the usual
30 lines or so of logs + scrollable history, it only shows a single
line or a couple of lines. Very annoying!

The only fix that I can find is to restart DDMS.

Anyone have any ideas?

 I noticed the same after doing testing for a longer time. Normally I
connect and disconnect my test phones and after a certain time the
DDMS shows only one line.

I assume that this is a bug in DDMS. So far the only way to get this
resolved is to restart Eclipse and have the device connected. Then
DDMS is able to pickup correctly the logcat again.

 You can get the LogCat to start again by doing a clear. Click on the
icon that looks like a page of paper with an X in the corner.

I believe the idea behind market is that by using the average rating the 
erroneous bad reviews will be filtered out by the weight of good reviews.
