This bug about smbd processes keeping logfiles opened after the log
rotation happened is still here.

Indeed, this is because we just "reload" samba (invoke-rc.d samba
reload) and, therefore, the smbd processes keep the log files opened.

As *restarting* samba is not an option (server admins will hate us,
and their users will hate them), does anyone have an idea here?

Should we report to upstream that smbd should close the opened log
files when it is sent SIGHUP?
