I have taken it from (I 
just found another and apparently not related source:

But as far as I am now I can tell that my actual problem is not 
reproducible when I exchange

So imho this patch might be problematic regarding the issue from my 
previous posts.

My solution for now is to augment the syslog patch to strip all the log 
messages out of the functions called/calleable by ngx_signal_handler(), 
even though suppressing this relevant information is clearly not optimal.

Kind regards,
