They are, in fact, tabs. Actually, the syslog.conf file is the one
that came w/ debian's sysklogd package; i haven't touched it.

Both are 2.4.3 boxes; one is built w/ netfilter support, the other w/out.
So, it's definitely not a firewalling issue..

I hope not. :(
Any other ideas? I'm starting to wonder if this is a bug in the kernel,
or w/ the 2.4.3 w/ debian syslog interaction. Mar. 18 and 20th were the
last days something was logged; this coincides w/ when I switched to
2.4.3-pre4 or 2.4.3-pre5 (according to timestamps on ftp.kernel.org).
Anyone else notice kernel syslogging _stop_ completely when they switched
from 2.4.2 to 2.4.3 (or one of the 2.4.3-preX's)?
(I'm considering crossposting to lk, but I'll wait until I'm certain..)
