Thanks for the report, but more information from the failing system may be needed to find the problem. Although 2.6 does not contain full unit test coverage, the default branch does - and I tested there with resource leak checking turned on, with no leaks being detected. An eyeball inspection fails to show where a leak could be occurring: WatchedFileHandler just makes stat() calls and, if appropriate, calls flush/close on the existing stream and open on the new one.
