No. It's a problem with HP-UX local messages support. If you can send me an
strace/truss/ktrace whatever it's called output of a logger session, I may
be able to help here. 

I need the dump of data logger sends to /dev/log. To achieve this, you may
have to enlarge the maximum string size to the syscall log (-s option of
Linux strace)
