First off: I realize that I'm a major bandwith user on this ml currently. That 
is mainly because I need to do intensive testing which in the past reveiled some 
problems which I wasn't able to fix by myself. Please tell me if I'm too nerving.

>>o remove old dependancy of klogctl from src-tree


>>o add back STATS counter to libol

I have a hard time triggering it, what's the best and fastest thing to trigger 
such a message? I do get message loss at a certain point but it doesn't get 
accredited within syslog-ng's STATS counter. I assume that this must then be an 
incoming buffer problem and not a destination buffer problem.

>>o fix wrong UDP message handling (maybe change back to packet based 

Yes, this is tested and verified. It now works better than with syslogd as a 
client. Thanks for addressing it.

Sorry for being such a pusher but is it possible to have it in 1.5.27? It has 
been updated and tested extensively by Achim.

I've seen it.
