Comment 8 for bug 407862

I did a check this morning and the pkill -HUP does stop the logging -
if it is actually still working at that point in time.

I also noticed that the logging will just stop *without* seeing the
HUP message. dmesg continues merrily, but nothing appears in
/var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages.

All very strange.
