As long as the system logging process isn't owned by "root", then your only 
option is to always have the LDM log file be writable by everyone, which would 
require having the umask of the LDM user be 0, which is not a good idea.

The solution, then, is to figure-out how to have "root" be the owner of the 
system logging process. How is it started?

The exit-status of a process is stored in the shell-variable "$?" for a 
standard shell (e.g., bash(1)) and in "$status" for csh(1)-like shells.
