[RDD] RDLogManager only inserts 24 events into generated log

Hi James,

It sounds like something is missing in either your events or clocks,
based on the description below it is difficult to tell.

For a good starting point on how to work the Rivendell scheduler, check
out the Brett Blog how-to.  It is a few years old now, but still a good
walk-through.  My suggestion - before worrying about scheduling rules
and such, start out just getting a full schedule generating (without
worrying about scheduler codes, can-con, etc).  Build some basic clocks
which just fill in with music and such.  Then once you're able to get a
schedule to fill with audio / carts, then start to add / create
scheduling rules for CanCon and such.  Also check to ensure you've
selected the services and such for your events and clocks.  I know it
took me several tries to get the scheduler working and generating logs.

In case you havn't found it, here's the link to the brett-blog
