The changed merged from causes a regression in SysLogHandler behavior. The socktype of /dev/log is dependent on syslog configuration, and the fallback behavior (trying SOCK_DGRAM and then SOCK_STREAM if the former failed) was very useful.

A better fix for this would preserve the fallback behavior in cases where the caller has not specifically requested a socktype. I've attached a patch with one such approach.
