Fix syslog to not run as root in gutsy

I've attached a patch to bug 120085 [1] that fixes the syslog daemon to not
run under the root account, but under the syslog account. This is a
regression that was introduced in Edgy (in Dapper, syslogd runs under
the syslog account).

So the question is whether it's too late in the release cycle to
introduce such a change.
