Apache log file - logging entries late


Hello,

I was looking into apache access log file and got a question.

Several enteries in apache log file are logged later then the newer one. For example :

Code:
[08/Dec/2006:18:29:03 -0800]
[08/Dec/2006:18:29:18 -0800]
[08/Dec/2006:18:29:53 -0800]
[08/Dec/2006:18:29:23 -0800]
[08/Dec/2006:18:30:03 -0800]
 [08/Dec/2006:18:30:27 -0800]
So, why apache is logging entries after logging entries of later time first (as shown in bold and red) ?

Thanks, Kirtimaan

Prob because Apache forks off child processes to do the actual work, but it's a shared log file.
If one child gets bogged down, it might log later than it's siblings.
NB: This is pure speculation by me (apart from the forks children bit)
