I'm not certain this will work, but you might try open /dev/stdout

Having said that though, why are you trying to send something to 
STDOUT? Daemon's aren't supposed to do that, that's why they close 
them. And you are already writting your debugging to a log via STDERR, 
so what do you need STDOUT for?
