Hello all!

Can someone look at this bugreport: http://bugs.python.org/issue6444
In short, when multiline log messages sent via /dev/log socket they are splitted into
multiple log entries. Only first entry will have proper timestamp and facility.

This behavior differs from sysklogd and metalog, where multiple lines are concatenated.
Even syslog-ng itself concatenates them when used via udp socket.

Tested on syslog-ng-2.1.3.
