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

I just looked into this a little more. It seems that the /var/run
file for syslog has changed. /etc/cron.weekly/sysklogd tries to
do this.

kill -1 `cat /var/run/syslog.pid`

but the file in /var/run is now this

-rw-r--r--   1 root     root            3 Sep 28 13:53 syslogd.pid


Dehydration - 34%, Recollection of previous evening - 2%, embarrassment
factor - 91%.  Advise repair schedule:- off line for 36 hours, re-boot
startup disk, and replace head - wow, what a night!
