If a non-privilged program calls syslog(3), after the call, errno is set to 13 (permission denied).
In lib/libc/gen/syslog.c connectlog(), it is first tried to connect to /var/run/logpriv. If it fails /var/run/log is tried. The first connect fails if syslog() is not called as root, it fails with errno=13 and the second connect succeeds. This is all fine, except that errno is set to 13 after calling syslog(). Is this a bug or expected behaviour? IMHO errno should be set to 0 before the second connect is called -- or is this a bad idea?
