dear suse security team,

on my standard suse 6.3 internet server, i have to do
"/sbin/init.d/syslog reload" after any log rotation.
if i don't restart it, syslog will not write to the new
log files.

this is a security issue, as i cannot track security
problems without log entries.

i already sent this as a bug report to suse a long time
ago but never got any response. what can i do?

regards,
michael balzer
