I'll look into that.

Already did that on both the problem file (/dev/log) and recursed the fs
(there are a lot of unlabeled files).

For now, I've somewhat side-stepped the issue and am logging to a file.
Not wonderful though, especially since Log::Dispatch doesn't seem to
have support for 'none' so if RT emits and emergency message, it won't
get through to syslog...
