Well, all this suggests to me that there must be some issue with the client syslog code in the libc, so that if syslog daemon hangs or has some internal issue that would basically render system mostly unusable. I think that might be an interesting project for somebody who has some spare time on hands to take syslogd as of (r317033 - 1) and see what can be done to improve resilience of the system against such a failure mode.
