The problem is fixed in 3.0.3, and was when syslog-ng is started, the
user root not are "login" so don't have aditional groups, like log,
admin, etc etc.

# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root)
# ls -l /var/log/syslog.log
ls: cannot access /var/log/syslog.log: No such file or directory
# /usr/sbin/syslog-ng
# ls -l /var/log/syslog.log
-rw-r----- 1 root root 79 2009-07-12 02:25 /var/log/syslog.log

@Allan: The uid.patch still in svn.
