Hello, Robert!

> I don't think syslog understands '.*' for priority.

Actually, according to syslog.conf(5) it should:

   An asterisk (``*'') can be used to specify all facilities, all levels, or
      all programs.

> Try using 'local4.debug' -- that will log anything at 'debug' *OR*HIGHER*.

I tried that, but it didn't help. Actually, I have several other  
daemons logging to various localX facilities and they do work with '*'  
level in syslog.conf

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
