the reason syslog-ng stops, because it receives a POLLERR/POLLHUP event
in this case:

poll([{fd=13, events=0, revents=POLLERR|POLLHUP

Hm... did syslog-ng report any kind of error in this case? I'm expecting

      msg_error("EOF occurred while idle",
                evt_tag_int("fd", self->fd->fd),

or, a

        msg_error("I/O error occurred while writing",
                  evt_tag_int("fd", fd->fd),
                  evt_tag_errno(EVT_TAG_OSERROR, errno),

message. I can't see anything like this in the stace file, but maybe you
are not reading the internal() log source?
