Re: lib/54527 (syslogd hangs when forwarding logs to a IPv6 host that is down)

I think (IIRC) that what I was trying to say is that the messages are
a bit noisy.

When the host to which the sylog messages are forwarded is down, I get
every 5s or so messages like this:
Oct 31 11:47:21 cactus syslogd[2053]: recvfrom inet: Host is down
Oct 31 11:47:21 cactus syslogd: warning: can't get client address: Host is down

(I ended up disabling the forwarding in syslog.conf to avoid this pollution).
