AFAICT this is not a change, but a bug in the Etch version of sysklogd that 
has already been fixed for sid/lenny.

The problem only exists for the very first messages file created after a new 
installation. Files created later after log rotation should have the 
correct permissions.

Cause is that the postinst script for the Etch version only created a few 
specific log files while the sid/lenny version will create all of them.

This is definitely not an issue in the installer and also not related to 
which version of the installer is used.
