bind and syslog

Hi *,

  As some of you might have noticed that already, bind has a small annoyance
related to syslog. Specifically, when the syslog daemon (no matter which one
it is) is restarted, bind loses connection to it and further log messages
are output to the console. The cure is to restart the bind, but on busy
servers its not a very good solution. I haven't checked that in the bind
sources, but I suppose it just opens the connection to the syslogger but
never closes it until it's shut down. As I don't expect bind to be fixed in
that respect any soon now, perhaps it would be better to just make the
syslogd daemons restart all "affected" programs when doing an upgrade and/or
restarting the syslog daemon?
