[RC5-PROXYPER] Log files owned by root?

I'm running a personal proxy server under Linux ("Bovine RC5 Personal Proxy
for UNIX (Build 251)").  There's an rc5 user account and it's running under
that.  Each day when a new log file gets started, the proxy creates a file
that looks like this:

-rw-rw-r--   1 root     root            0 Dec 11 16:01 keys_1212.log

...and obviously it can't write to it.  How do I control the owner and
permissions of the new log files?

BTW, this only seems to happen when it automatically rolls over to the next
day.  If I stop the proxy server, delete the old log file owned by root,
then restart the proxy server, the new one is owned by rc5.rc5 which is
exactly what I want.
