  It's actually in 2.1.9.

  You now have to HUP after logrotate.

  Before, it wouldn't re-open the file, even if you did HUP it.  I'm not
sure why you thought it was rotating the log files before... that just
didn't work.  It opened the log file when the server started, and never
touched it again after that.
