Unfortunately, no. I haven't been able to figure out why it died - and
this is the only time it has died in the month or so I've been running
it. The issue, though, is that if it dies, I have no way to
programmaticly start it again without user intervention (and those SEC
instances) on this system.

That's why I was hoping there were some AIX admins that have built or
edited rc, init and/or other scripts for syslog-ng. That won't help
with the SEC scripts but I'll deal with that later - at least I'd
still have the data.
