Ok, I checked that - I didn't unterstand that there is a log file called
'%m.log' without a common substitution, and I didn't try a samba ad dc.
We should replace this with "samba", like we do that for the nmbd/smbd.

BTW: on my testsystem the samba log does never rotate, regardless of
"log file" is set or not :-)
