I guess you'll get a blank period between the time when vispan last ran 
and when the log is rotated that the statistics will not be accoutned 
for. If it's really important, you could probably run vispan on the 
rotated log just after it is rotated. Though then it might conflict with 
a cron run vispan unless you use lockfiles (or maybe vispan does itself) 
so it might be more trouble than it's worth.
