Bug#5268: cron dies nightly

> 1.) cron should ignore SIGPIPE for itself and its children
> 2.) syslog should be fixed :)

#1 also goes for all other daemons that use syslog.  It should be fairly
easy, though, to just trap the SIGPIPE (instead of ignore it) and re-open
the syslog path.  Child procs won't pass this back to the parent, but
everything would still work.

There is no problem with syslog.  We were restarting syslog so modifications
to the config file would take effect.  There is no way any program can save
a dynamically created pipe over a restart.
