[Twisted-Python] Rotating logfiles (SIGUSR1 doesn't work)

we've written a server running as a twisted application. Logging is  
done via twisted.python.log.msg. The log file is growing rather big  
and only rotated on server startup, which hopefully is a very rare  
occurrence, indeed.

Sending a SIGUSR1 to twistd unfortunately doesn't do anything.

I've seen that the class LogFile has a rotate method but I don't see  
the connection between twisted.python.log and that class if there is  
any at all.

Any hint would be highly appreciated
