Sometimes I wonder... anyway. The patch has been merged in moonbase and 
patches, builds and compiles (and runs!) fine on 2.4 kernels. I have no 
2.6 boxes around at the moment to test the patch on so please checkout 
moonbase in 15 minutes and give it a run if you have a 2.6 kernel (and 
let us know, thanks).

Anyway, maybe I'm an old fart but syslogd runs and runs stable. In this 
case old means decent, nobody touch my syslogd!!!
