This update fixes the following issues with syslog-ng:
- bnc#850445: update 3.4.5 (bugfix release)
+ Related entries from ChangeLog:
* A race condition in log message reference counting
code that sometimes led to crashes was fixed.
* An assertion that happened in certain situations when
a subst() rewrite rule was used was fixed.
* A use-after-free error that sometimes happened after
a reload, and caused memory corruption was also fixed.
* patterndb was corrected not to create a new instance
on reload: this way, the old one is not leaked, and
db-parser() does not forget the correlation state, nor its
idea of current time on reload.
* Fixed the log message reference counting in the AMQP
destination, thus stopping it from crashing.
* Fixed a possible crash in the AMQP destination that
could be triggered when the AMQP server was unreachable at
the time of a syslog-ng reload or shutdown.
* pdbtool no longer segfaults when used with the
--module switch
* pdbtool test exits with a return value of 2 if the
test value matched a different pattern than expected.
* The inherit-properties attribute was added to the
patterndb XSD.
* A memory corruption was fixed in the @STRING@ parser
of db-parser().
- update 3.4.4 (bugfix release)
