Samba 3.0 Logging Seems to Stop

Hello Fellow Listers,

I have turned on logging with the following in smb.conf:

log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
log level = 5

The following seems to stop (ie- no more output) after about 5 minutes
or so:

tail -f /var/log/samba/log.winbindd

I press Ctrl-C to exit tail, rerun the above command and tada! the
logging seems to be working again.

This only happens when "tailing" samba log files.
