BUG: Crash With Logrotate

I was having issues with the rpmfusion version of motion with Fedora 20 crashing late at night. I figured out that it was crashing when log-rotate would run. I think this was only happening when motion was recording to a file at the same time logrotate would run.

Motion was using it's own log file. /var/log/motion.log , I took that out of motion.conf and just let it log to /var/log/messages and the problem went away.
The log file was deleted and I've updated to Fedora 21 since then, 
but I recall it said it could not find motion to restart.

Environment

Motion version: motion-3.3.0.trunkREV557-10.fc21.x86_64
ffmpeg version:  
Shared libraries: ffmpeg
Server OS: Fedora 20
