Each time syslog-ng is started with current default syslog-ng.conf provided by the package it issues a warning about dns-cache being forced to “no” because use-dns is set to “no” as well. Although it is a very minor, almost solely cosmetic, thing it would be great if dns-cache would be set explicitly yo “no” in config. This would make warning go away. I realise this warning does nothing to cripple the daemon itself, which runs perfectly well regardless, but I'm in a habit of quickly scanning log messages with my eyes in search for any errors and warnings. So any warning, even completely benign, takes time to interpret and ignore, instead of quickly asserting that “things are just fine” when there are no warnings present in the logs at all.

Pretty selfish, I know ;}, but perhaps someone will find this rationale convincing.

Steps to reproduce:
Start syslog-ng and take a look at the log messages.
