Problems with syslogd and /var/run

Dear all,

two days ago inetutils-syslogd began dying within seconds
after each restart. Regrettably it cannot be traced:

   # kdump -f /syslogd.core
   kdump: data too short
       0     UNKNOWN(258)

Yet the core dump is 4M in size. Do look at your systems
to see if syslogd is still alive.

In addition, there are several complaints about "/var/run"
and the inability to create directories, resulting in
a handful failures to launch daemons, including Exim4.
Are we sure that this migration to "/run" is correct?

Best regards,
  Mats E A
