My techs have just been restarting the server at the beginnibg of each month. If memory serves me correctly, the nfacctd service dies.

Can you elaborate a bit more on the 'nfacctd does not start accounting for the new month'? It just stops accounting or it keeps accounting on the old month (ie. it seems like it does not flip the month)? Or some different behaviour? The more details you can share, the better.
