You said earlier that this was on a reinstall of your base OS, right?
Is there a chance you were using the Unix::Syslog module on the old
system, but are now using Sys::Syslog? Unix::Syslog only understands
the numeric syslog codes, so convert_log_facility_to_number() call does
the conversion in the
codepath. It assumes that any log level it doesn't understand should be
treated as '0'. That code isn't applicable if you use Sys::Syslog, as
it uses the textual descriptions directly and will error if it sees one
it doesn't understand.
