Thanks. I'm glad that I can help you.

I have updated last night, and found your change to add
 openlog() and closelog() before and after syslog().

I think this will fixes the syslogd and logger problems.

BTW, I think another fix should be applied to init.c in busybox.

In the current settings in /etc/inittab, this will not 
affect at all. But if the order in /etc/inittab is
changed, and delete_initAction() is given the first action
(or last ? anyway, in the case of if action == initActionList)
as its argument, the result will go in not-intended way.

Please look at this.
