I can not start radvd 1.8.3 when using a different logmethod than default.

My goal is to redirect all traffic to a logfile because I get to many
"received RA from xxxx::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx" in syslog.

This works:
radvd -u radvd -p /var/run/radvd/radvd.pid
radvd -m logfile -u radvd -p /var/run/radvd/radvd.pid --debug 1

This does not work:
radvd -m logfile -u radvd -p /var/run/radvd/radvd.pid

Error is:
[Dec 29 11:26:47] radvd: version 1.8.3 started
[Dec 29 11:26:47] radvd: Exiting, privsep_read_loop had readn return 0 bytes

Same error with version 1.8.0.
Distro is ubuntu server 10.04.3 LTS with my own/debian compiled radvd
1.8.3 package.
debug 5 output: http://pastebin.com/58vvH01M
