Solaris 8 / perl 5.6.1(AS) / works fine with inet, as well as w/o setlogsock()
Solaris 9 / perl 5.8.0     / same result as Sol8, but see note[1].

[1] The output is different btw. the test that uses setlogsock('inet') and the one that just opens the log w/o using setlogsock(), the second test's output is in normal syslog format, the first shows a different host name (localhost actually) and doesn't show [ID facility.severity]; same output as the first test happens with 'udp'.
