Next time NetSurf is run, the previous log file is overwritten anyway. So
quitting and restarting NetSurf would have the same effect, without the
need to manually delete things from !Scrap.
My cache preference is set to 5.0MB. I found that the cache directory
in !Scrap was nearly 0.5GB? I think this merits a bug report.
The cache size option is for the memory cache and has nothing to do with
what's stored on disc. The memory cache size limit is applied when the
amount of stuff in NetSurf's cache is greater than that value and there
are things in the cache that is not currently in use.
The content of the !Scrap cache directory is probably thumbnails (for
global history) and source content from when you use View Source. You can
safely delete it.
