hmmm, weird. added a fflush(stdout) which seems to work (tested :-])

that's an unrelated bug (phew) which I should fix anyway. well, bug: you
have an empty line in your configfile. you should either use # at the
start of a line as comment, put a configparameter on it or leave it away.
but i'll fix it anyway
ok, fixed - and tested!
but hey: multitail is my toy-project, i'm not doing this fulltime so I
cannot test it all and such.
