Anything you print to STDERR in your Perl filter will be captured and
logged using syslog (assuming you supply the "-l" option to the multiplexor.)

So you can add debugging statements into your filter.

Your filter should _not_ print anything to STDOUT, or communication
between it and the multiplexor will fail in all kinds of strange ways.

Try running it by hand as the "defang" user to eliminate any possibility
of bad permissions.
