Which process is this a truss of?  That's a pure one-second delay loop,
and I don't believe innd has such a loop that it can reach before it will
log at least some startup messages to syslog.  However, rc.news *does*
call sleep before starting several other processes, so if you're getting
the wrong process in truss, you could see something like that.
