[syslog-ng] strangeness regarding hostname parsing

I am using syslog-ng 2.0.1.

Running the command...

	$ logger -t "foo bar" baz

...results in syslog-ng using "foo" as the hostname and "bar: baz"
as the message!

This is a problem, for example with gconfd, which uses a tag like
"gconfd (USERNAME-PID)".

So, something seems to be wrong regarding the message parsing
and whitespaces -> file src/logmsg.c, function log_msg_parse().
