Wanted to pass this along -- to me as long as I'm going to get an
email I might as well know how many lines were ignored.

Hello,

 I am tweaking LogWatch, removing some unwanted lines by placing a regex
 in "ignore.conf". That works great, but it seems that LogWatch is not
 noticing that all unmatched entries have been ignored, and as a result,
 the section is printed. For example:

 >  --------------------- Connections (secure-log) Begin
------------------------
 >
 >
 >  **Unmatched Entries**
 >
 >  4 Ignored Lines
 >
 >  ---------------------- Connections (secure-log) End
-------------------------

 Perhaps this is done by design, but in my opinion it just clutters the
 report.


 Thanks,

 Chris
