Funny you should mention that. I am seeing exactly the same problem. I
am suspecting perl myself, and had just sent mail to Vikas asking if he
had a small perl program to test communications to noclogd like the
newtest program. If not I will have to try to hack up my own unless
someone else can manage it. My perl skills mean this may take a while.
