My question is how can I make sure the logs are rotated when
they grow too large AND they are also rotated at a specified
point in time (start of a new month).

I am reading man newsyslog.conf and it says:

If the when field contains an asterisk (`*'), log rotation
will solely depend on the contents of the size field.

To me it seems to say that when it is not an asterisk (i.e.
when I enter a date), the log rotation is not based solely on
size factor, which in other words should mean it is also based
on time?

I haven't looked closely at newsyslog in awhile.  I started to
write up a reply to you, but in a quick test newsyslog does not
seem to be working the way that I expected it to work.  It might
just be that I was too tired to think straight when I was testing.
I'll try to get back to this sometime later today.
