Hi there,

I have syslog-ng 2.0rc3 on FreeBSD 5.4.
>From time to time I have problems. Syslog-ng dies with core dump.

This is output from gdb

In syslog-ng config I have some pipe sources.
I have this problem after upgrade from 1.6 to 2.0rc3.

Any ideas why I have this problem and how to fix this?


Best regards,
