Unfortunately, I have not been able to get syslog-ng to work correctly.
It starts fine and then 20 minutes later (the apparent default) logs a
mark (three times, to the screen as well as logfile) and then hangs.
Consistently. I have tried this under Linux 2.2.1 and 2.2.5 and -- with a
little minor editing -- HP-UX 11.00. Any idea what my problem is?

Just as a note, it runs under HP-UX and will handle remote logs correctly,
but the system's syslog() function seems to append a couple hundred bytes
of binary data to the end when writing to the named pipe /dev/log; I have
no idea what this data is for.
