Is this a syslogd error?

(I could be wrong; just took two minutes to look at this).
`perldoc Sys::Syslog` says that error happens when syslog couldn't talk
over reliable connection. I'm assuming you have syslogd logging to
localfiles on the same machine as the mogilefs tracker.
A quick fix might be adding "setlogsock('udp');" above the Server.pm
line with Sys::Syslog::openlog in it.
Should be an easy test if you can manually stop syslogd and cause the
mogile tracker to crash.
It could be a while before I personally could test this condition and
suggest a patch, but if someone else wants to it's really easy.
