Package: syslog-ng-core
Version: 3.19.1-3
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

syslog-ng (with default config files) warns on start.

># First, set some global options.
>options { chain_hostnames(off); flush_lines(0); use_dns(no); use_fqdn(no);
>      owner("root"); group("adm"); perm(0640); stats_freq(0);
>      bad_hostname("^gconfd$");

Error message from /var/log/syslog (using systemd):
>Feb 18 01:10:07 blackbox syslog-ng[12242]: [2019-02-18T01:10:07.303183] WARNING: With use-dns(no), dns-cache() will be forced to 'no' too!;

Adding "dns_cache(no);" into options { ... } resolves this matter.
