I'm using syslog-ng over redirected ports inside an SSH 
channel and whenever I HUP syslog-ng, the SSH channel 

This appears to be a problem with syslog-ng, as if I 
kill -KILL syslog-ng, the channel remains in place.

I copy logs over the channel using a perl script.  This
also may be suspect of course..  The channel seems to close 
when the script writes to the (possibly disrupted tcp) 
socket.  If I don't write to the socket, the channel stays up..  
I use the IO::Socket method $socket->can_write to attempt 
to find out if the socket is still writable but this does not 
show any problems but the channel dies anyway.

Anyone else seeing this problem?
