There appears to be no Log.RemoveTraceListener() method available, so that the TraceListener will NEVER be disposed. While I don't know whether there is a specific instability case here, this is certainly a significant opportunity for resources to be poorly managed.

At minimum, a RemoveTraceListener() method should be added to the EFSAssistant.Log class, and this method should be called at the equivalent step to whatever this project has to a Form_Unload() event.
