Right. This was a bit of a pain to figure out, as I had to understand Bazsi's recent logproto/logtransport rework, but the problem turned out to be really
simple once understood: prior to the rework, the text transport was smart enough to recognise when it is in dgram-mode, and didn't expect a newline termination
in that case. With the rework, the text transport was split, and a dgram transport was born.

However, afunix was not modified, and it always set a text transport, even when operating on a unix-dgram. BUT /dev/log messages are not newline terminated, so
they were accumulating in an internal buffer, waiting for the buffer to fill up.

The obvious fix is to teach afunix to do the right thing, and set dgram transport as appropriate. I'll send a patch soon.
