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 
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.
