Mark, I'm running version 1.1, and CPAN reports that:

    Unix::Syslog is up to date (1.1)

Anyway, thanks for your help with this Mark.  It's certainly not a 
critical issue and I'll be upgrading this server to Fedora 15 once it's 
released in May and also upgrading to the latest version of Amavisd-New, 
as well.

Hopefully something in the upgrade of the OS, Perl, and Amavisd-New will 
resolve this strange logging issue.

Thanks again!
