Yes, of course -- I'll open up a new file descriptor (or FILE* ?) first, 
and then assign the new value to the field in the relevant structure -- 
up until that assignment, the current log-file use will continue using 
the earlier descriptor.

Is not worker_open_logs() running in every child process?
