Syslog error

It seems, in my Linux setup, that syslog sometimes concatenates two lines. This happens very rarely, but it really causes trouble as we use the log files for various statistics.

An example from the log:

Sep 10 04:02:03 MyServer dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for xx.112.135.55 from 00:11:95:8d:63:ac (DI-624) via eth0 <134>Sep 10 04:02:03 dhcpd: DHCPACK on xx.112.135.55 to 00:11:95:8d:63:ac (DI-624) via eth0

Have anyone of you seen this before. The (few) times this has happened the sequence <134> is on the place where I would have expected a newline. Also, the log line following immediately after misses the server name (MyServer in this case) after the date stamp - the rest of the line looks as expected.

I'm running ISC server V3.0.6rc2  on Red Hat Enterprise 2.6.9-55.x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
