Description Panic 2000-08-03 11:20:54 EDT
The files are being renamed and created, but all of my messages are still
being written in /var/log/messages.2, with /var/log/messages and
/var/log/messages.1 being completely empty.  It would appear that while the
cron rotation is functioning, sysklogd is not switching files.  This is
after about two and half weeks of the Netfarm being up.

seems to work fine with a snapshot version from the last weekend, so if anything
broken, this should be fixed already.
