Package: gnome-system-log
Version: 3.9.90-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Seems that gnome-system-log cannot track syslog (guess that the same happens
with other logs) after log rotation happens. Last syslog line show in
gnome-system-log is

rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="8.14.0" x-pid="2718" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd was HUPed

which is indeed last line in rotated /var/log/syslog.1. It stops showing
new info after that, although there is new info in /var/log/syslog
after the above line, which also appears as first line in new file.

This may also be the reason for the problem reported as 
https://bugs.debian.org/754485 [Fails to stay up-to-date when left open for
a few hours].
