According to the man page it very specifically states that a "kill -HUP
pid" will reload rsyslogd.conf. I tried modifying one of the rules in
rsyslogd.conf followed by a HUP; I tried variations on the rule.
Nothing mattered. HUP did *not* pick up the changes.
So killall -TERM rsyslogd followed by /sbin/rsyslogd -c 4 and the new
rules were picked up and it began to behave correctly.
Conclusion: either the man page is wrong or rsyslogd has a bug.
