syslog marking sendmail output as "kernel:"

	I'm seeing in the logs :

Oct 16 00:00:25 valhalla sm-mta[69206]: l9G40Kf5069206: SYSERR(root): collect: I
/O error on connection from, from=<postel at gardengatemag.c
Oct 16 00:00:25 valhalla kernel: Oct 16 00:00:25 valhalla sm-mta[69206]: l9G40Kf
5069206: SYSERR(root): collect: I/O error on connection from
.br, from=<postel at>

	I understand there isn't a problem with the first one, but then its logging
the second as a "kernel:" entry. My syslog.conf is :

*.err;kern.debug;auth.notice;mail.crit          /dev/console
*.emerg                                         *
*.debug                                         /var/log/spool

	Is there a way to stop that second entry? It keeps tripping my syslog
monitoring program.

		Thanks, Tuc
