Obviously, procServ has no influence on what the child process is doing
with the file system. For whatever operation the child wants to do, it
should better have the necessary permissions.
procServ's own log files are not closed and reopened when the child
process is restarted.

(As in real life, the parent can only do so much about a misbehaving
child...)
