After building/installing version 3.4.2 I am seeing many more segmentation faults.
I used to get 1-2 per week, and after the update the errors are occurring more than
1 every 30 minutes.

As a side note, I got an eventlog package of 0.2.13 from Balabit some time ago,
and have never seen it available again. the current release of eventlog seems to be


but software with release versions that include dates alway make me nervous.

Would the developers expect the eventlog versions to be so tightly coupled with
the release version of syslog-ng that a mismatch would result in segmentation faults?
