well, it was actually simpler than that.... the problems with syslog
occured when using the old version of DBI and the Proxy.pm, as these call
RPC::pClient.pm which calls Sys::Syslogs.pm, the newer Proxy.pm installed
with DBI v 1.08 calls RPC::PlClient.pm which does not call the Syslog.pm.

i don't have a web page to use, so i will send you a brief summary if you like?
