Not very proactive but it just might work ;)

I meant debugging info for others to see. Output from a kernel logging
daemon terminal restart would be good. Output from dmesg would be
good. I'm guessing FAILED and nothing respectively. How about trashing
/var/log/messages* and then touch /var/log/messages? Are the systems
running low on disk space due to excessive/verbose logging? Blah,
blah, blah...
