Here is an example of some of the output from our log files.  The syslog function was called with:

define_syslog_variables ();

preceding it, closelog was never called.  If this is the cause, then the documentation should be updated to reflect this requirement.  Here is an example of what is in the logs:

 () at Jun  5 12:51:25,
000; text-decoration: underline} at Jun  5 14:09:12,
^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^B^ at Jun  5 14:09:33,
