Confirmed and details to reproduce:

* Download the busybox binary file from [1] and extract the file `busybox`
* Run the latest netinst image in Qemu/KVM (sid)
* Select the installer
* Answer all the questions and let it run until an error (to make sure 
that the network is properly configured)

* Select a shell in the installer
* Download the older busybox binary file (you can use my server)
  `cd /`
  `chmod a+x busybox`
* Kill the running syslogd
  `ps | grep syslogd`
  `kill `
* Restart syslogd from the older busybox
  `/busybox syslogd -m 0 -O /var/log/syslog -S`
* Log something
  `logger -t Test It works now`
* Send Ctrl-Alt-F4, to see the output in the log

With kind regards,
