I had the same problem. This version of Freeradius should not be HUP'ed
it seems. I found this info by searching the archives.
Problem is that Ubuntu and Debian do that by default once a day in
/etc/logrotate.d/freeradius. You should be fine by replacing
"/etc/init.d/freeradius reload" with "etc/init.d/freeradius restart" in
that file. Disclaimer: untested by me.
In my case i upgraded to a more recent version. But this if far more hassle.
