recent rsyslog changes

Again, I am doing small changes, mostly review, at this time. So I have batched up some things. Probably I'll switch back to a more daily mode, as it allows to keep better in touch. We'll see (comments appreciated).

Here comes the log:

2007-09-10
- bumped version number to 1.19.6
- fixed a bug that in --enable-debug mode caused an assertion when the
discard action was used
2007-09-07
- added eCmdHdlrGetWord command handler
- added $ModDir config directive
- modified $ModLoad so that an absolute path may be specified as
module name (e.g. /rsyslog/ommysql.so)
- applied patch by varmojfekoj two fix two potential segfault situations
- cleaned up some signed/unsinged char issues
- released 1.19.5
2007-09-10
- bumped version number to 1.19.6
- fixed a bug that in --enable-debug mode caused an assertion when the
discard action was used
2007-09-11
- applied patch by varmojfekoj to change signal handling to the new
sigaction API set (replacing the depreciated signal() calls and its
friends.
- did a full review of all remaining TODO items in code - nothing of
importance found (but some minor nits like comments fixed)
- cleaned up compiler warnings
- applied patch by varmojfekoj to FIX a bug that could cause
segfaults if empty properties were processed using modifying
options (e.g. space-cc, drop-cc)
- fixed man bug: rsyslogd supports -l option
- checked -s/-l option and found that they work as expected - closed case
- added some comments in relation to -s/-l option
- released 1.19.6
- removed compiler warnings in non-debug mode
- fixed a bug that caused the CStr class to not honor the parameter to
return NULL on empty string - causes a mem leak and can create favourable
environment for other bugs (as it leads to empty hostnames)
- pulled 1.19.6 (no downloads so far), created new 1.19.6 with the bugfix,
re-released that (now tagged v1-19-6b in cvs)
