Yes, this is a definite issue which I will address soon.

As for rotation over 80MB?  My eve.log normally gets to 300MB or so
before rotation by logrotate just fine. Anyways, if you are seeing an
issue with rotating large file sizes its more likely your logrotate
program than Suricata, as all Suricata does on HUP is close the
existing log file, then re-open it - appending if it already exists,
or creating a new file if it doesn't exist, so the size should not be
an issue.
