I searched through the list archive and found that this topic had been
brought up before, but I'm not sure if it's been resolved.

Every time innfeed reloads, it dumps a line to errlog, even though
innfeed.conf defines the logfile as innfeed.log:

Tue Jan 22 13:37:24 2002 innfeed: loading /var/news/etc/innfeed.conf
Tue Jan 22 15:23:47 2002 innfeed: loading /var/news/etc/innfeed.conf

Katsuhiro Kondou replied, saying:

Just read innfeed/misc.c again and found how this comes.  In
that case which means '-C' is not specified, logOrPrint() is
called with NULL fp.  It pushes log message both to stderr
and syslog.  This is not the case for CURRENT, and this is
why I've misread.  I'll try to fix.

Does this mean it's a bug?
