I've seen this mentioned several times before in this list but I never saw a
fix for it.  I'm using libol 0.2.18 and syslog-ng 1.4.5 on a debian woody
system doing TCP logging as well as local logging.  Syslog will run for many
hours just fine and then die like this.

The hex in brackets the print instruction pointer at time of syscall.

If there's anything I can do to help you diagnose the problem let me know.
