Mailman needs to have different log file names in order to work properly with logrotate. A proper Logrotate conf file for Mailman needs a postrotate command in order to restart Mailman after log files have been rotated. See FAQ 04.007 for more details (http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=edit&file=faq04.007.htp)

Here is a patch against v2.1.9
