Since all my other logs are rotated on a daily/weekly basis, I want my
ices logs to behave in the same way.

Nevertheless, this thread finally gave me the incentive to fix ices so
that it rotates logs on SIGHUP, which is much nicer.  Here's the patch:

(The second LOG_INFO0, apart from verboseness, ensures that the new
logfile is created right away.)
