The problem:
Some are early messages missing, but the first msg _logged_ is
always a partial sentence.

I assume this happens because sysklogd reads the messages from
the scrollback buffer after it is started, in order to log
messages which have gone by already. It just isn't reading back
far enough, as the info is there in the scrollback buffer
(I can see it).

So my guess would be: a) sysklogd needs to be fixed to read
further back, or b) the kernel needs to tell sysklogd there
are more messages available, c) I need to kick the computer
around the room.

It isn't a syslogd.conf problem AFAIK. I have all kernel
messages going to a kernel log, no matter the priority
(kern.* /var/adm/kernel). The messages don't appear,
or are incomplete in the logs - any log.

Thanks for your comments.
