check_hostnames(yes) doesn't help.

I checked some information's with tcpdump. An I found a very interest =
handling. Syslog-ng is able to handle hostnames in syslog datagram, the =
delimiter between hostname and service name seams to be a space. So if I =
have spaces in service name syslog-ng thinks that the first word must be =
the hostname, but that's wrong. What can I do know?
