Bug#521542: boinc-manager: after some days, "Messages" is not updated anymore

Package: boinc-manager
Version: 6.2.18-3
Severity: normal

after some days (maybe 14? the log starts at Mar 11 and stops at Mar 25) the log
messages in "Messages" tab are no more updated.

The file from where that information are taken,
/var/lib/boinc-client/stdoutdae.txt I suppose, is still updated:

$ tail -2 /var/lib/boinc-client/stdoutdae.txt 
28-Mar-2009 12:12:19 [Einstein at Home] Project file upload handler is missing
28-Mar-2009 12:12:19 [Einstein at Home] Backing off 20 min 13 sec on upload ...

but the messages in "Messages" stop at Mar 25.

If I exit boinc-manager and re-execute it, the log messages are displayed fine,
but then this problem reappears after some time (I'll keep open the problematic
boincmgr for some days to allow for debug, if you need it).
