[Dovecot] Dovecot stops logging of imap logins after logrotation

on my Debian box there is a logrotation cron job that will gzip existing
/var/log/mail.log file and create a new mail.log.
It seems that after running logrotation dovecot stops logging successful
POP or IMAP logins to /var/log/mail.log (nevertheless, it still works to
login with POP or SMTP).
This is bad because pop-before-smtp mechanisms also stop working.
I have deactivated logrotation cron job and will monitor mail.log file.
Maybe I should just run
after logrotation script.
What do you think?
