As is pretty much complete normal the log files don't roll over at 
exactly midnight - if for no other reason than that it would be very 
hard for the log rotation process to do everything instantly.

Rather the cron job that rolls logs over normally runs at about four in 
the morning or so and we then save the old file under the previous days 
date, so you will see some messages whose date doesn't match the name.
