This usually indicates that leafnode has died by segfault. You could try
to check what's going on by using strace. If you have a bash, try the
following (as root):

strace /usr/local/sbin/leafnode 2&> /tmp/logfile

and send the logfile to me (it's probably quite large). Another alternative
is to run leafnode out of gdb (again as root):

gdb /usr/local/sbin/leafnode
(wait until segfault)

If it segfaults and it was compiled with -g (which configure usually should
set), you should learn from the output where the segfault occurred.
