Well I'm not entirely sure what fixed it. This is a very old system and 
has been dragged through dist-upgrades starting from about Lenny.

I went through it removing all the defunct and obsolete stuff and found 
rsyslog had somehow uninstalled itself. Reinstalled that and rebooted 
and ... voila!

It is now on 4.9, I am unable to install 4.10, it tells me I have held 
broken packages, which I don't. This may be specific to the i386 package 
or it may just be me.
