Subject: syslog-ng: Syslog-ng init script - $SYSLOGNG_OPTS in syslogng_reload()
Date: Wed, 06 Oct 2010 12:10:15 +0200
Package: syslog-ng
Version: 3.1.2-1
Severity: normal

The argument $SYSLOGNG_OPTS to start-stop-daemon in the
syslogng_reload() is not needed and should be removed.
It will generate an error if SYSLOGNG_OPTS in /etc/default/syslog-ng are used.
