Hi all,

here it is another fix, this time the problem of the missing logfile
is solved chdir()ing just after the log file has been just opened, so
the log file will be placed in the dir when ffserver is launched as
expected, then the daemon process will chdir() to "/" as it seems
usual and safer for daemons.
