   in preparing other changes (port in forward actions, etcetera) for
   IU-syslogd, I have discovered that the handling at reload of
   configuration, as well as failed implementation of the action
   fields, will lead do memory leaks over time.

It shouldn't leak of course.

   Using the following setup



      cat > $LOGDCONF <<STOP
      *.*       @localhost
      *.*       |/dev/null
      *.*       /tmp/bucket
      *.*       blind,mice,and,cats

      sudo ./src/syslogd  -d --pidfile=/tmp/syslogd.pid -f$LOGDCONF --no-klog 
-p/tmp/log $*
      ## End of script

   I have sent USR1 once and HUP twenty times to the process without
   detecting a crash or other malfunction.

What do you mean with a crash?  Did it crash before?
