[Syslog-ng-maintainers] Bug#727649: syslog-ng memory leak when using templated filenames and rewrite rules

Control: forwarded -1 https://github.com/balabit/syslog-ng/issues/308
Control: tag -1 upstream
Control: found -1 3.5.6-2
Control: found -1 3.6.1-1

I managed to reproduce the problem on the latest upstream version too,
and forwarded it upstream. During my tests, it seemed that the
unix-stream() source file was opened many many times, which would easily
explain the leak.

Can you check what happens in your case? Also, does the problem persist
if you use unix-dgram() for /dev/log, instead of unix-stream()?
