I encountered this problem earlier and even using syslog was unable to 
get all the info I needed.

Skipping that Q in sidewise:
  Is there some way to get the messages dropped and matching filter/line 
into the notices or info syslog level?

That would be _so_ helpful with a lot of self-adjusting filters. And I 
suspect what the original question was refering to that or other data 
only available through -v*

BTW, Debian current unstable version (leafnode 1.11.3.rel).
