[syslog-ng] syslog-ng redis destination problem

Hi (again) -

  This one has me a bit puzzled. I am trying to write to redis using the example from the syslog-ng documentation:

destination d_local_redis {
 redis(command("HINCRBY" "${HOST}/programs" "${PROGRAM}" "1"));

but I am getting "-ERR value is not an integer or out of range"

I have tried this on a couple systems. This particular one is:

[n0142566 at VDDP13E-F1A47ED src]$ /usr/local/sbin/syslog-ng --version
Compile-Date: Jul 22 2014 12:30:06

Enable-Debug: off
Enable-GProf: off
Enable-Memtrace: off
Enable-IPv6: on
Enable-Spoof-Source: off
Enable-TCP-Wrapper: off
Enable-Linux-Caps: off
Enable-Pcre: off
[n0142566 at VDDP13E-F1A47ED src]$ 

And I have captured the packets to see what is being sent and see this following the TCP stream with Wireshark
(pcap attached)

-ERR value is not an integer or out of range

Note: when I use ("INCR" "testkey") it works - seems like the integer increment is not being sent correctly?

Is this something I am getting wrong or is it a bug ?

Thanks (again)
