I'm not sure who's at fault here, but I found that /var/log contained
many old log files, with a ".0" extension, which I believe got there
when changing system loggers, causing logrotate's configuration to
change.  After deleting those (note: not all .0 files are bad; check the
date), everything worked fine.
