I used a Debian 5 I had available here, ran apt-get update/upgrade and
compiled rsyslog 4.4.2 from scratch. Then I entered the first line into the
config and restarted rsyslog.
After doing so, I had the relevant errors in /var/log/syslog.
a) the commands were flagged as invalid by 4.4.2
b) error messages are logged (at least up to 4.4.2)
Note that I had the statements directly in my main config. Can you verify you
get the error messages, too, when you have them directly in the main config?
I'll now see if v5 does not emit the messages...
