This looks to be busybox logger.c at fault.  Trying bb logger using sysklogd
1.3 for the syslog daemon also shows the crap, while using busybox syslogd, the
first result below is bsdutils logger, the second is busybox logger...

Hmm...  Checking logger.c for non-NULL terminated strings.  Hmm.  Looks
like my_getpwuid is not NULL terminating things.
