[syslog-ng]no logging with udp()

I just spent an hour trying to figure out why our clients couldn't log
to the syslog-ng server anymore. To make a long story short, a patch
had replaced the original syslogd start script so both daemons were
started. syslogd started first and managed to bind to udp port 514 so
syslog-ng never even saw the messages. It didn't complain over not
being able to bind the port though -- I would have expected it to say
"failed to bind udp port 514" or something like that. Think you could
make syslog-ng whine more if it can't bind the port?

OK, now all I have left to fix is the raid system, the backbone
switch, our two printers on this floor, and the backup system. I
won't be going to bed early tonight...
