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.
