Yah possibly; in the absence of any other changes, some Event that
spiked the volume would be what I expected to find.  But i can't find
anything in that time frame.

What version does that start appearing in?  I've still got 1.6.9 - i was
considering upgrading to the 2.0 branch, but not until I understand what
happened here.

Thanks for the info.  It's working now; took down stunnel, syslog, and
mysql, stared hard at all the configs for a bit, brought it all back up.
 Started working again.  I'd feel better if i knew why it is working
now, even more than finding out what broke before.
