 I varnish svn as of 2006-11-02 running on Centos on Xen 3.0.2 and all
 children dies every 2-5 minuttes. The parent process survives. Since the
 varnishlog is heavily buffered and does not mark a deaths and restart of
 childrens it's hard to figure out how and why it dies. The problem only
 surfaces on a productions site, so it's makes it hard to strace and try to
 figure out what request makes it die (if any)

 It would be very nice if two things could be enabled

 1. Turn off buffering for logging using a switch of some kind
 2. Log unexpected death (if possible) and spawning of new children,
 escpecially if all of them died..
