I use "fwbuilder" to create my rules for iptables and it uses the option
"--log-level" to the the syslog priority but there seems to be no way to set
the facility which I think must be set to "kern".
I've also commented out the "kern.* /dev/console" line in /etc/syslog.conf
which is probably why I dont get the messages you're getting.
I've got *.debug going to /var/log/messages which is where I get my iptables
