A change to bring syslogd into RFC5426 land *enforces* a max. length of 480 characters, while the RFC clearly states:
3.2. Message Size
IPv4 syslog receivers MUST be able to receive datagrams with message
sizes up to and including 480 octets. IPv6 syslog receivers MUST be
able to receive datagrams with message sizes up to and including 1180
octets. All syslog receivers SHOULD be able to receive datagrams
with message sizes of up to and including 2048 octets. The ability
to receive larger messages is encouraged.
So, please, issue a fix for this. The size the implementation must
minimaly support should not be the size the implementation can maximally support.
this bugs affects everyone - is there any value in updating it? I can't change it myself.
