syslogd regression


the recently committed syslogd changes seem to cause the following

$ cat /etc/syslog.conf
#       $NetBSD: syslog.conf,v 1.9 2004/07/23 03:45:42 mycroft Exp $
*.err;kern.*;auth.notice;authpriv.none;mail.crit        /dev/console
*.info;auth,authpriv,cron,ftp,kern,lpr,mail.none        /var/log/messages
kern.debug                                              /var/log/messages
*.debug                                                 /var/log/foreign

This used to work fine, logging messages from the local host to
/var/log/messages and those of remote hosts to /var/log/foreign.  But
now all messages from the local hosts end up in /var/log/foreign:

$ logger -p this is a test
$ tail /var/log/messages
[... nothing ...]
$ tail /var/log/foreign

BTW, notice that the first argument to logger(1) was not logged. Hmm...

Any hints?  Is anybody already debugging this?

Regards, Jukka
