HPUX pads incoming log messages to 2048 bytes boundary, so you need a log
source like this (quoted from the file INSTALL):

  HP-UX (HP-UX 11.0)
  HP-UX uses a named pipe called /dev/log for log transport, and you
  can use this with the pipe() driver with an additional option. HP-UX pads
  all incoming messages to 2048 bytes by default, so you need to specify
       source stdlog { pipe("/dev/log" pad_size(2048)); };
