Couple logadm questions

My logadm.conf is below. Is there a way to match a log file that appends the time/date stamp after the log file? Also, a 0 is being appended onto the files I'm compressing and having rotated. Is there a way to fix that?

/var/apache/tomcat55/logs/catalina.out -C 30 -P 'Fri Jun 18 16:48:55 2010' -c -p 15d -z 0
'/var/apache/tomcat55/logs/{http_access,localhost,admin,catalina,manager,host-manager}.*.log' -C 15 -p 15d -z 0
'/app/logs/app.csv.*$' -C 15 -P 'Fri Jun 18 17:16:32 2010' -p 15d -z 0

How do I stop logadm from appending a "0" to each .gunzipped log?

Example: log.0.gz

#! /bin/sh
DATE=$(date "+%m-%d-%Y)
test –f $LOG && mv $LOG $LOG.$DATE && gzip $LOG.DATE
## hup the $LOG writing process if needed with kill -HUP
