I saw the following in my 'tiger' output
 --FAIL-- [dev002f] /dev/log has world permissions

which is indeed true:

 $ file /dev/log
 /dev/log: socket
 $ ls -lt /dev/log
 srw-rw-rw-  1 root root 0 2005-06-28 13:28 /dev/log

but I cannot find a manual page etc that tells me what this socket is
for or whether the permissions are correct

all advice gratefully received
