Also, it seems this problem was encountered a long time ago before:

I don't know what became of this discussion, but I find it hard to
believe that I'm the only one with this problem if it is in fact still
an issue with syslog-ng and not with my setup.

If there's anybody on this list who can confirm that syslog-ng can
receive messages logged via /dev/klog on FreeBSD, I'd much appreciate
