Ubuntu 9.10 Alpha3

rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="4.2.0" x-pid="2296" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd was HUPed, type 'lightweight'.

After the above message in syslog no more messages are sent to any system logs. Plugging and unplugging an usb device produce no messages, although the device is mounted an works fine. Also, nothing is produced by the logger command.

The problem occurs in a desktop and in a VirtualBox virtual machine. It occurred soon after karmic alpha 3 installation and persisted after installing all available updates in both environments.

I'm attaching a typical syslog.
