I'll look again when it happens next, but I didn't start poking around
/proc/*/fd until I'd killed off syslogd.

BTW:  Does anybody know what files syslogd and klogd open?  Is it possible
that there is some race condition causing one part of the program to think a
file still exists when another part has already closed it?

Damn, I've *got* to get the source for syslogd and klogd off the CD and start
poking around.  Like I don't have enough problems...
