Not really, but I hope it was a non-Bucardo bug, cause I can't make
heads or tails of it otherwise. :)

Cool. log_line_prefix, please!

I can't really think of anything except to check the logs and see if you
can determine about when this happens in the code. Maybe adding some
purposeful die calls will help narrow it down?
