[syslog-ng] syslog-ng 1.1.24

I hunted down the scheme shell and installed it.   Grabbed the .24
and compiled.   Still segv on attempts to log any message in Solaris 2.6.

I'm currently using tcp_wrappers, just wondering if that has any side
effects.  I can cause syslog-ng to dump when I telnet from a machine that
does not have access -- thus causing a security message to be sent
to the logger.

Looks like null pointer information being passed to c_format in

This is the the current conf file I'm using for the syslog-ng.conf:

# Setup global options
options { sync(10); };

# Setup source pipes
source src { sun-door /etc/.syslog_door; internal; };

# Setup destination pipes
destination everything { file /var/log/sys sync(2); };

# Connect log pipes from source to destination
log { source src; destination everything; };
