@Petri: It's great that it worked for you, but IIRC the syslog module has had 
thread-safety issues at least on some platforms, which is why it's not used in 
the SysLogHandler implementation (disclaimer: this was a while ago, I don't know 
if the syslog module is thread-safe now - I believe the thread-safety issues 
were in the underlying C APIs).

I am working on a patch, watch this space :-)
