can you be more specific? it simply does nothing, it crashes or?

syslog-ng should send this message to the system log when it receives a
system log:

         notice("SIGHUP received, restarting syslog-ng\n")

do you receive this message when it does not correctly restart? can you
attach truss to the running syslog-ng process when you send a HUP signal
to it?
