A quick followup: I downloaded, built and installed sysklogd-1.3 today. The
freezeups stopped, but a new buglet appeared which I've heard discussed on this
list. Unless I put the startup command for syslogd in inittab, _after_
rc.multi is run, it dies immediately.

What did the cure for this turn out to be? Is it a problem with the kernel, or
a problem with syslog?
