good point... my /var/log is a symbolic link to /tmp and "ls -l" shows
that its permissions (after system boot) are "drwxrwxrwt".
I think the problem may be due to /tmp being mounted AFTER/AT THE END
of the system boot... in fact, /tmp is a tmpfs... the relevant line in
/etc/fstab is:

     tmpfs           /tmp           tmpfs    defaults          0      0

now my question is: how do I ensure that /tmp is mounted before
/etc/init.d scripts are run?

Thanks a lot!
