When you run the rotate logs script, it moves the old log records to a
different file.  The qacct program, by default, only looks in the
default accounting file.  If you want to see those old records, you'll
have to point it at the backup file using the -f command line
argument.  I think the accounting files from previous days are stored
in the same directory with an integer suffix.
