That doesn't answer the OPs question - he wants to keep a separate 
error log, I guess in the same way that you get a mail.log and a 
mail.err. Having an error log is quite handy for spotting errors 
since they aren't then buried in the normal stuff.

It may be possible to use pattern matching in one of the more modern 
syslog replacements, but that would require an advance knowledge of 
all the possible error messages (or at least a common element).
