 Try out `topic/jsiwek/rotation-fix` for this and see if it work ok, looks
 like it fixed it for me.

 The particular thing that was causing the hang usually was the no-op case
 for the ascii writer when there wasn't a log file for a given rotation
 interval (e.g. notice_policy.log and packet_filter.log typically are
 written to once at startup only), and it wasn't sending a FinishedRotation
 message back to the manager which is what decrements the pending rotations
