0002437: watchdog log files are being output in current working directory, not based off the root directory
It seems like the watchdog process is creating log/ directories based on the current working directory when resin is started up the first time.


[/home/ckchris] /etc/init.d/resin start

This creates a log/ in my home directory even though a specific root-directory is given in the resin startup script (/var/resin).

I believe this is an oversight due to the recent changes to the watchdog code.

As a temporary workaround, I simply made sure that my startup script changes into the /var/resin (root directory) before starting up resin process.

There are no notes attached to this issue.
