Log files lines getting piped in the command prompt

Hey guys,

Bit of an odd one here. I recently set up syslog-ng (to try out with the http://loggly.com server) and ever since I've been getting what looks like the contents of my apache logs piped through to the command line (stdout, is that correct?) whenever I'm logged into my linode via SSH.

Actually, it's not all the time but intermittent and I think it's probably more than log files as I get a whole load of funky messages from Apache when I restart it that I've never seen before. These are standard warning messages as they "take over" the command prompt if that makes sense.

Any thoughts on how I can undo this mess?
