sendmoreinfo is right, tail watches for changes in file size. Sometimes this does not happen correctly on mac clients (especially when samba is involved). I ended my search in this phenomenon after two days, the mac smb client is just wired sometimes (ever tried to connect to shares with signature check twice?).
The problem was with systemd... So I removed it by running: sudo apt-get install upstart-sysv The "service" command is finally outputting the same as any other Linux distribution... Without the unneeded extra garbage!
