No more logs since cron.weekly rotation



Files in /var/adm as daemon.log, messages, auth.log don't get updated this
morning. Here's the rest of a ls -ltr in /var/adm

-rw-r--r--   1 root     adm             0 May 19 06:47 daemon.log
-rw-r--r--   1 root     adm             0 May 19 06:47 debug

-rw-r--r--   1 root     adm           498 May 19 09:05 diald.log   


What's even more strange is that the xconsole window has all the relevant
information. Here are the last lines:

May 19 09:05:33 miles pppd[9109]: pppd 2.2.0 started by root, uid 0

Any idea what's wrong? Is that a sysklogd problem? Or a savelog problem? 
System info is as this:
