consider syslogd's -a option. Or simply call openlog(3) with LOG_NDELAY before
chroot(). Or place the first call to syslog() before chroot(). Syscall() does
not close the socket between calls.

int main(void) {
openlog( "klaus", LOG_NDELAY, LOG_NEWS);
chroot("/tmp");
printf( "before\n" ); fflush( stdout );
syslog(LOG_ALERT, "TEST1");
printf( "between\n" ); fflush( stdout );
syslog(LOG_ALERT, "TEST2");
}

strace give the following output:

...

socket(PF_UNIX, SOCK_DGRAM, 0) = 3
fcntl64(3, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC) = 0
connect(3, {sin_family=AF_UNIX, path="/dev/log"}, 16) = 0
chroot("/tmp") = 0

...

write(1, "before\n", 7before
) = 7

...

send(3, "<57>Aug 4 07:17:09 klaus: TEST1", 32, 0) = 32
rt_sigaction(SIGPIPE, {SIG_DFL}, NULL, 8) = 0
write(1, "between\n", 8between
) = 8

...

send(3, "<57>Aug 4 07:17:09 klaus: TEST2", 32, 0) = 32
