Public bug reported:

euca-get-console-output seems to repeat itself once for every time it is run, and get slower also.
For example:

$ id=i-42DC08AD; 
$ euca-describe-images emi-A89717DA
IMAGE   emi-A89717DA    lucid-server-20100224/lucid-server-uec-amd64.img.manifest.xml   admin   available       public          x86_64  machine eki-0F4A1CE9 

$ euca-describe-instances $id
RESERVATION     r-3BB80760      admin   default
INSTANCE        i-4B5808C7      emi-A89717DA     running  mykey   0       c1.medium       2010-03-03T18:52:41.391Z        cluster1        eki-0F4A1CE9
$ TIMEFORMAT=$'\nreal: %3lR' ; 
$ while : ; do time euca-get-console-output $id > out && ls -l out && sleep 5 || break; done
real: 0m0.239s

-rw-r--r-- 1 ubuntu ubuntu 115399 2010-03-03 13:04 out

If you look at 'out', it is just the repeated boot sequence... the instance isn't actually writing anything new.
