I have heard that 105181-20 might not be the ultimate patch. One thing to
try is to rollback -20 and apply -19. I've heard from sources within SUN
that -20 is known to have a few bugs. The nature of these bugs - I don't
Just my $.02

Well.. It was a good shot.. but.  I updated the system to the latest
recommended patch set.  Now I have 105181-20 as well as 105181-15.  Still
getting nice core dump. :-(

It cores out on startup.  It apparently doesn't like part of my
configuration.  Debug output is:

Your patch kernel may be too low, I remember some similar probleme when
starting syslog-ng for the first time. Pre 105181-15 core dump and 15-17
make system crash. I have no probleme since -19.
