Problems with console-log package.

Historicaly, I've kept a couple of 5 to 10 line xterms up on  my desktop
doig a tail -f o the mail logfile, and the system messages file.

I would like to use the console-log package to do this on my new woody
machine, but there apears to eb a problem with it. This morning at 6:23
when the mail log file was rotated, consol-log did not pick up on this.
I'ts still showing the end of yesterdays file :-(

This seems to eb a basic shortcoming in this package. Am I missing
somehting in how to set it up? I would be happy to contribute my existing
solution (which works 80 to 90% of the time) to anyone who is working on
this. I might even be talked into doing a bit of perl hacking to get
soemthign that should work 100% of the time, but I don't want to reinvent
the wheel!
