As you all know, it is easy to setup a "CustomLog" to log to an application.  Eg.

CustomLog "| /usr/bin/myscript.pl" "%h" etc..

Now, all works well if this perl script is okay.  However when the application fails, apache
tries to restart it. (ie. myscript.pl keeps popping up as a new process all the time).

After some time, apache freezes completely and is unusable.  The rest of the system remains
Setup a customlog directive to a program (eg. a perl script) which does not work properly
and returns error.
