[asterisk-dev] Asterisk 1.8.1 seems not logging any queue activity until a reload is triggered

I'm testing the new Asterisk 1.8.1 release and I'm finding a strange
problem I would like to share with the dev-list members.
If I start an asterisk 1.8.1, and I generate some queues activity, this
seems not reported on the queue_log until I issue a "core reload"
command from the CLI.
Looking at the code I've found something that I can't understand: in the
init_logger function present in the logger.c file I can see that the
qlog file hander is assigned to a new file only if qlog itself is
different from NULL.
That sounds strange to me because I suspect that the log file should
always be open.
I've changed the init_logger code to have something similar to:

if (qlog)

    char tmp[4096];
    snprintf(tmp, sizeof(tmp), "%s/%s", ast_config_AST_LOG_DIR,
    qlog = fopen(tmp, "a");

and this seems to solve the issue... but I would like to have a feedback
to understand if it's the right way.
The problem is not present when issuing a reload because, in this case,
the function reload_logger is called instead.

The same behavior seems present in the 1.8.0 revision.

Thank you and regards,
Marco Signorini.
