Howdy, I recently installed the same config file I had
in 1.6.0rc1(or rc2?) on redhat 7.3 to a system with
syslog-ng 1.6.2 with redhat 9...

My log files are not being written in the format that
I would expect (or that they WERE on the old box).. 

I would expect the following rule to write to the

Instead I get:

The rule: destination messages.network {
group(sysadmin) perm(0640) dir_perm(0700)
create_dirs(yes) ); };

This happens with all similar destination rules. The
$year, $month, $host, etc work fine in the first
portion of the destination, but they don't all work in
the filename.. but $day does for some strange reason. 

I can provide my full 164 line config file on request,
but all destinations are setup the same as this one,
and all get the same result. 

What am I missing here? :)
