Just to be sure, can you log any kernel message (try with
modprobe/insmod) ? If not, pay attention to start klogd _after_ syslog,
in order not to break the pipe. If you're using the default sysklogd, it
should be the default behaviour. In that case, I've no suggestions.
Simply try to log a packet just before dropping it, and see if it's
really dropped.
