I see that Jose already forwarded the bug, but I wonder; can you tell me
what impact the failed test (and thus failed or potentially failed code
block) may have on syslog-ng run-time on CentOS-5/RHEL5?

Is this hash problem going to cause critical failures? Under what
circumstances? Or is it, well, it'd be nice if that hash problem didn't
happen, but it's not a big deal...
