Description Jose Plans 2007-09-03 05:25:04 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #275031 +++

Description of problem:
Syslogd ignores additional socket files as this one gets overwriten in :
                for (i = 0; i < nfunix; i++) {
                    if ((fd = funix[i]) != -1 && FD_ISSET(fd, &readfds)) {
                        memset(line, '\0', sizeof(line));
--->                    i = recv(fd, line, MAXLINE - 2, 0);
i gets overwriten and therefore corrupts the counter not allowing the next UNIX
sockets to be audited.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1.Configure /etc/sysconfig/syslog to add new sockets,

 SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-m 0 -a /var/log/newsock"

2.Restart syslog daemon.

3.Write data to var/log/newsock socket file.

Actual results:
Use only default socket file (/dev/log), ignores additional new socket file.

Expected results:
Use additional and default socket file.

Additional info:
Patch provided and tested by the customer.
