Default syslog: some files stop logging on reload

Package: sysklogd
Version: 1.4.1-21ubuntu3
Severity: normal
File: syslog

/etc/init.d/sysklogd reload behaves different from /etc/init.d/sysklogd restart
in that files that receive logs, and that are not directly below /var/log, but
eg. below /var/log/news stop logging on reload. only restarting sysklogd will
make it open and write those files again.

to test do below commands and compare the directory listings:

/etc/init.d/sysklogd restart
ls -l /proc/$(cat /var/run/syslogd.pid)/fd
/etc/init.d/sysklogd reload
ls -l /proc/$(cat /var/run/syslogd.pid)/fd
