Description Helge Oldach 2004-12-07 12:40:25 UTC
Upon startup of qpopper the syslog facility is set to LOCAL0. This is
true even if the -y flag is specified on the command line, pointing to a
different syslog facility.

This causes startup and termination information to be logged wrongly:

Dec  7 13:23:50 sep qpopper[89470]: qpopper: Server: cleaning up and exiting normally
Dec  7 13:23:54 sep qpopper[89493]: qpopper: Server: listening on [::]:995
Dec  7 13:23:54 sep qpopper[89493]: qpopper: Server: listening on

The patch below attempts to read the -y flag very early in in the
startup process (similar to the -d and -t flags).
