The scripts that take care of the samba and the mars log
rotation have an error in them.  The postrotate section
needs to end with an endscript NOT endrotate.  This seems
to prevent syslog from getting the HUP signal, as logrotate
seems to stop the process at this point and ignore the

Changing endrotate to endscript fixes the problems.
