Ok then, I've got syslog-ng 1.6.9. I guess it will be worth the upgrade 
to 2.0 at some point when it becomes very solid.

In the meantime I wrote a quick script to test the programs are alive 
and restart syslog-ng if one of them dies, which is good enough and gets 
the job done so I'm ok with that for now.
