After a bit of discussion here, and using a patch to newsyslog.c
supplied by Dirk GOUDERS <gouders at et.bocholt.fh-ge.de> (which I
tested), I've filed a PR with the patches which may be accessed at

I encourage folks interested in the issue to follow up to the PR.

I'm confident that the supplied patches (against newsyslog.c rev. 1.107)
will address the above-cited issue.
