Hi, just did an apt-get upgrade today and installed syslog-ng 1.9.9 
after this I was fighting some hours with my system.
syslog-ng logged a few minutes then it hanged, all logfiles showing the 
same timestamp. This also caused my mail system ( postfix ) to hang and 
also caused other problems.
After a restart of syslog-ng the problem was gone, also 2 times 
sylog-ng started logging again after about 15-20 minutes for a short 
I found something on a old mailinglist about 2 sources from the same 
unix-stream which was the case in my logfile. I removed the second one 
but the problem still occured.
I have also read something about klog runing, which isn't the case on 
my machine.
I have now downgraded syslog-ng to 1.6.9 and it's working fine again.

My system is a Debian linux
Linux 2.4.31-grsec #21 SMP Fri Dec 2 08:49:48 CET 2005 i686 athlon-4 
i386 GNU/Linux

Best regards, Cristian Livadaru
