I've been asking around in a couple of places and someone else had pointed out that logtail itself has changed to now use inotify to tell when a file has changed and that there may now be more signals being tossed about as well. I don't know if this offers any additional info or not, but thought it worth mentioning.

thanks for all your feedback
