  Popular causes include:

  - running out of disk space. Once syslogd is unable to write to
    /usr/adm/SYSLOG, it won't try again until it is `killall -HUP
    syslogd`ed.

  - installing IRIX 4.0.x and failing to heed the nagging from
    the system when it is rebooted to run 'versions changed' and
    combine new and old configuration files.  In this case, the trouble
    is in /usr/spool/cron/crontabs/root.

  - Separating fields in /etc/syslog.conf with spaces instead of tabs.
    If you use spaces, syslogd will silently segv when it reads that
    file.
