here it is actually syslog which should put process name into a proper place. Maybe on HP-UX 10.20
it has problems logging LOG_ERR facility  because that's the only difference between these two messages
and two others which you are quoting :)

Anyway, SIOC*MTU fails on HP-UX 10.20 so I thought it might worth to notify the user that our magic to figure
out the mtu failed and we just used to default value. if it looks annoying, could be cleaned up too. (moved
to 'debugmessage' section :))
