You may want to refine the M-x grep regexp to not be fooled by files
with the time string in their name, saying 'no more hits':

egrep -n -e ^Processing\|To\ do pppjobs.2003-09-23-12:49:09 /dev/null
pppjobs.2003-09-23-12:49:09:4:Processing        file:/home/jidanni/my
pppjobs.2003-09-23-12:49:09:104:To do: Retrieving the URI results

or it might not be worth the bother.
