Occasionally I get entries like this in my log. It looks like more than one
process is logging at the same time. Shouldn't syslogd be
thread/SMP/concurrency safe from this kind of thing?

In an unrelated note, I'm getting a few " *** POKED TIMER ***" messages in
the syslog from named, anyone know what this is? I found a few questions
about in the archive, but no answers (telling somebody to search the archive
isn't any good when that's the only answer found)
