[syslog-ng] Syslog-ng again

I robbed the HP-UX configuration file and have tried it on my AIX box.
If the last line isn't commented out, it logs nothing. With it
commented, netmessages acts as expect but either way no other files are
created, nothing else is logged. Configuration file follows:

options { sync (0);
          time_reopen (10);
          chain_hostnames (no);
          use_dns (no);
          use_fqdn (no);
          create_dirs (no);
          keep_hostname (yes);

source s_sys { unix-dgram("/dev/log"); internal(); };
source s_udp { udp(ip("") port(514)); };
source s_udp_s { udp(ip("") port(601)); };
source s_tcp { tcp(ip("") port(601)); };

destination d_cons { file("/data/logs/console"); };
destination d_mesg { file("/data/logs/syslog.log"); };
destination d_mail { file("/data/logs/mail.log"); };
destination d_mlrt { usertty("root"); };
destination d_mlal { usertty("*"); };
destination netmessages { file("/data/logs/netmessages.log" perm(0660));
destination net_pipe { pipe("/data/pipes/net_pipe" perm(0660)); };

filter f_filter1   { facility(mail) and level(debug); };
filter f_filter2   { (facility(mail) and level(debug)) or
                     level(info); };
filter f_filter3   { level(alert); };
filter f_filter4   { level(emerg); };

log { source(s_sys); filter(f_filter1); destination(d_mail); };
log { source(s_sys); filter(f_filter2); destination(d_mesg); };
log { source(s_sys); filter(f_filter3); destination(d_cons);
destination(d_mlrt); };
log { source(s_sys); filter(f_filter4); destination(d_mlal); };
log { source(s_udp); source (s_udp_s); source (s_tcp);
destination(netmessages); };
# log { source(s_udp); source (s_udp_s); source (s_tcp);
destination(net_pipe); };
