Anyboddy setting the log file by command line (-l)

It's broken on FreeBSD.  The symptoms are that NTS-KE doesn't work. :)

The context is issues #710 and #711.

I haven't looked at the code yet.

The fork/daemon code is cleaning up and closing everything but stdin, stdout, 
and stderr.  Or at least that's what I expect it to be doing.  I think it's 
closing the log file without telling the log code, so the logging continues to 
use the old file.  If NTS-KE is running, that log file is gets reused for the 
TCP connection so the log messages trash the SSL connection.  Or something 
like that.

If it's working for somebody, that might help me understand the code.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
