Why not use the -l parameter to specify your other log file directly and
forget the pipe?
I believe that when you do that all the log management is left up to you,
though I haven't been in the code for some time, so I am not completely
certain about that.

Doesn't anyone know of a way to NOT set a limit to the size of trapd.log.
I currently have a trapd.log set up as a pipe to another log file.  Since
this pipe daemon already has a built in rollover capability, I do not need
this capability for trapd.  I am running into problems when trapd attempts
to rollover.  I know I can probably set trapd.log to a very large value (
is there a max size for trapd.log), but is there a parameter that tells
trapd to limit the size of trapd.log and then not rollover.
