There have been some bugs in the past where syslog-ng was not always 
connecting to the database correctly on the proper ports, etc. However 
in your case this could only apply if something was also listening on 
the default port I would assume, since it seemed like it had connected. 
Although as one of the other posters had pointed out there could be an 
inaccurate error message as well. Perhaps you could verify it's 
connecting properly to the DB using Wireshark?

Was the tsql / sqsh / etc. based testing performed using the same 
machine as the syslog-ng setup is running?
