Another update. I made the mistake of setting the -C option once and
syslog-ng had no problem creating the folders based on that options

It would seem that it might be a filter issue - since those
destinations never receive a message, they're never created (and I've
increased the timeout it waits to open the file)? How can I verify
this issue - and as you can see, about the only filter I use is
netmask() which I had working at one time.

I'm tried mkfifo and mknod to create the pipes - both create them but
again, I still don't see any data going to them.

Something is broken...
