Gack, must call "select STDOUT" after the reopen operation, since we

used "select STDERR" to change the line buffering. The result was that
after the log roll, the child was printing to STDERR instead of
STDOUT, and so the parent never saw any new events.

Note that USR1 (re-exec binary) does not work since exec bypasses the
END block, and things get messed up. Not fixed yet.
