Bug#1531: syslogd continues to write to old file after savelog

Package: syslogd
Version: 1.2-11

As you can see below the syslogd is still writing to daemon.0 after
savelog ran on Oct 1st.

-rw-r--r--   1 root     adm             0 Oct  1 06:47 /var/log/daemon
-rw-r--r--   1 root     adm        207110 Oct  3 11:52 /var/log/daemon.0

root        97  0.0  0.8   73  132  ?  S   Sep 28   1:01 /sbin/syslogd

After I kill -HUPed the syslogd process it started writing to the
proper logs i.e. daemon again.

startup disk, and replace head - wow, what a night!
