No, two lines, somewhere a blank got added that wasn't there when it left 
here.

I have that in there now.  But even disabled the router is silent at the 
moment.  Here is a sample of what one of its messages looks like as I rebooted 
it:

Mar  2 19:41:12 router syslog: syslogd : syslog daemon successfully stopped                                                          
Mar  2 19:41:12 router kernel: klogd started: BusyBox v1.11.1 (2008-07-26 
11:32:32 CEST)                                             
Mar  2 19:41:12 router syslog: klogd : klog daemon successfully started

Note the 'router' identifier

>/var/log/dd-wrt/router.log already exists with the same permissions
>(user/group/mode) as /var/log/messages before you restart rsyslogd.

I did.

Yeah, but its only this machine I'm seeing, and there a 2 other ubuntu 
machines on this network that don't do that.  And it just keeps hammering 
away, probably 90% of the local traffic here, and that is counting fetchmail 
checking 3 servers at 90 second intervals.  I have attached a 60 second 
tcpdump -i eth0 -nn capture.  This cannot be right.
