Yep, there's no support for that at the moment.  There could be an unlink() added to the end of RollLogs() function in conserver/group.c.

The parity setting you define in the config will trigger some of this.  There's a mapping in conserver/consent.c:

struct parity parity[] = {
   {"even", PARENB | CS7, 0},
   {"mark", PARENB | CS7 | PARODD | PAREXT, 0},
   {"none", CS8, 0},
   {"odd", PARENB | CS7 | PARODD, 0},
   {"space", PARENB | CS7 | PAREXT, 0},

So, use even parity and you end up with 7,E,1 (in theory, at least).
