New submission from Arie Skliarouk <skliarie at gmail.com>:

I am trying to send utf8 strings over syslog/udp and get strange error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/logging/handlers.py", line 788, in emit
    self.socket.sendto(msg, self.address)
TypeError: sendto() takes exactly 3 arguments (2 given)

See the attached program, at the beginning it has two parameters - log to file or udp and use utf8 or not. It works in all cases but the udp+utf8.
