  Upstart log files are not reopened after rolling

Status in upstart package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Seen on stable and proposed vivid based touch images
  I noticed on two of my devices that after a scheduled rolling of the files in /var/log/upstart that there were no active *.log files at all.
  The config for upstart includes nocreate but this has always been this way.
  Is this intended or did something change in logrotate?
  A similar bug report states that the files will be opened on a subsequent write from the upstart process, but this is clearly not happening.

  See http://askubuntu.com/questions/481236/upstart-not-reopening-log-files-on-logrotation
  and perhaps bug #1350782
