looked around more and found a /usr/lib/console-log/maillogpager running
with permanently changing pid's. after i killed it's parent my remote sun
session works fine again.
can anyone tell me what this pager is for? i looked at it, it's easy to
read, as it's just a bourne script. but i don't know what's the sense of
it and who starts it when or what for.
