Bug#2881: syslogd doesn't treat pipes correctly

Package: syslogd
Version: 1.3-2

I'm using syslogd with the standard /etc/syslog.conf provided. It logs
to /dev/xconsole.

However, if /dev/xconsole has not been opened for reading when syslogd
opens it to write, syslogd closes it and does not re-open it.

This makes the pipe facility semi-useless. Any time you wish to see
output from a pipe, you need to SIGHUP the syslogd.

Can this please be fixed in the next release?
