Yes, we have the same problem here.  But I never compiled debugging
symbols into by binary yet so I couldn't get the line number (and there
I think three of those assertions in that routine)

I also have a script that restarts syslog-ng every hour :) Otherwise, it
crashes 3-4 times per day, and leaks memory like a seive.  I gave up
trying to find the problem because of the strange libol junk.
