I recently went about digging into syslogd. After compiling the source,

After running it thru strace and gdb, the dump occurs just after a series of
attempts by syslogd to open the following file/directory:


These series of paths/filenames are built from a call inside the executable that

Anyone have any ideas whats going on here? Or better suggestions on how to get
the bottom? Thanks, Morgan
