Hi all

I have a weird problem with syslog-ng. I am setting up a syslog-ng client 
on an Apache server which forward both access and error log to a central 
syslog-ng server. 

The access log on the source has entries like this: - - [23/Apr/2010:13:55:25 +0200] "GET /images/userLo...
and this becomes like this on the syslog server: 
servername - - [23/Apr/2010:13:55:25 +0200] "GET /images/use

All ok with this one, but with the error log I get this on the webserver:
[Fri Apr 23 13:55:25 2010] [error] [client] File doe...
but this on the syslog server:
servername Apr 23 13:55:25 2010] [error] [client] File do...

Where is the [ character at the beginning of the timestamp gone?????

Both logs use the same type configuration; I have double checked 
everything, but I have no clue why syslog-ng(?) does this... 

In wireshark the receiving syslog server is receiving it like this, so it 
is send like this by syslog-ng on the source server. 

Any idea?

Met vriendelijke groeten / Cordialement / Freundliche Grüße / Best Regards
