Hello, I've found a quite serious bug in closelog() function: there is no reset of %options hash. It is global variable, so it must be reset to the default values after calling closelog() - same, like $facility and $indent variables are reset to default empty value. Now it is not possible to change the flag value from 1 to 0 in the subsequent openlog() call - the function only enables flags, not disables them. Regards, MJS
