[Bucardo-general] Kid Dies When using Syslog for Logging

Well I think I might of fixed the kid death issue. I've upgraded to  
Perl 5.8.9 (from 5.8.8), reinstalled all the perl modules I had  
installed, upgraded  plperl to 8.2.11, and upgraded to PostgreSQL  
8.2.11 (from 8.2.9) server (client was already at the version). I  
have syslog and debugfile turned on, and nothing has died in the last  
2 and half hours. I've been doing huge deletes of 9000+ records at a  
time, as well as inserts of similar size. I'm guessing this may be  
able to be racked up to a bug in Perl itself or one of the modules  
(when I was doing the upgrades no Perl modules changed versions, just  
reinstalled). However since I went for the "upgrade everything on the  
system" approach I don't know exactly what change made it work. Any  

I'll be doing more extensive testing tomorrow to see if I can get it  
to die.

Lastly, the bug when bucardo_ctl is run without --dbhost still  
exists. Any steps you'd like me to do to track this down?
