win! ;)

Actually, IMHO, the "Last message repeated n times" is not as bad as it
sounds. It means that message immediately in front of it must be
repeated n times when you run an analysis. Of course, you loose the
timestamp of those previous n messages, but everything else is inact
(else you wouldn't get that "repeated" message...).

Some folks really like this message because it keeps their logs clean of
repeated stuff (and it may save a lot of space if somtehing runs wild).

Of course, there are many cases where the repeat logic does not make
much sense. There are even cases where it makes no sense at all with a
given output. Thus, with rsyslog ( http://www.rsyslog.com ), three is a
simple -e (every) option that turns off this feature. Some outputs also
disable it (for them) automatically, because they can not work well
enough with that feature (I think the database writer turns it off, but
I need to look that up...

Well... Not an answer to the original question. Maybe my mumbling can be
added to the useless message case ;)

Rainer
