Venus has always sent stuff to stderr. The only difference between v5
and v6 clients is that they don't redirect stdout to /dev/console until
it reads venus.conf and redirects stdout to the venus.log file.

I think it tries to display just a single message when it is 'reopening'
the venus.log file. That one message is now removed in the CVS version
and hopefully this will make things work again on RedHat 9.
