Resolution

There is a variable that allow IO to lock the universe.log for its rotation:
U_ARCHLOG_LOCK

This variable can be found in
Node's setting : Logging

Or in french :
Verrouillage système du fichier journal lors de l'archive

This variable can be set to N (for no) Y (for Y) or B (Yes with blocking). Default is N.
Though setting it to Y could be enough, setting it to B can be necessary. Try Y before B.
