Here's that part of the conf 

options {
    sync (0);
    time_reopen (10);
    log_fifo_size (1000);
    long_hostnames (off);
    use_dns (yes);
    use_fqdn (no);
    create_dirs (no);
    keep_hostname (yes);

I think we're OK >> I am looking into the previous suggestion that it is
related to MySQL... I'll update here as soon as I have more info.

Hmm... macro expansion uses the value for log_msg_size() for determining
the format buffer size. What is your setting?
