Same here. I disabled email notification completely, else I would lose data
from the point of notification until I restarted the daemon. This issue is
reproducible and leaves no traces in logfiles whatsoever. Strange behavior:
if (let's say) 3 machines on a certain network produce a lossdetect warning,
I might even get three emails (if this happens quite at the same time), so
the daemon does not die after sending the *first* email, it seems to die
shortly after reporting that incident...
