Good point. I forwarded this on to the devel list. Obviously this bug
has been around forever. If I'm reading the code right the "Today" is
based on time - 86400 so it is not date sensitive. The RPM releases
generally set up a symlink in cron to make sure that logwatch runs
before logrotate. Which should avoid the basic problem. However there is
still a window from the time logwatch ran until the time logrotation was
done. So your point is valid even there.
