I've tried everything! The console messages I could live with, but
losing the important stuff in dmesg output was the killer. So much
stuff from iptables that the important stuff in dmesg output was
pushed off the top. Unfortunately *nothing* I tried would get rid of
it. I changed to "-c 4" a while ago, but output was still going to the
ring buffer (what's apparently shown in the output of dmesg). In fact
I killed klogd entirely and *still* got the iptables output shoved
into dmesg output. 

I decided to surrender and use ULOG instead, but now I get
nothing. I've installed the testing "ulogd" package and tried
installing the original source, with the same result, no
output. There's a Debian bug filed against this behavior (#132675 &
#1356688) but I'm not hopeful since the bugs are pretty old.
