I found a minor problem in new logging system.

New logging system limits zone-names effectively to 4 characters. If you 
have REJECT policy between 2 zones which have 5 characters long, here 
example ipsec zone, I iptables will give error because logprefix is 
limited to 29 characters.

--log-prefix "Shorewall:ipsec2ipsec:1:REJECT:"

So zone names should be limited to 4 characters or default logformat 
needs change. My fix was to change to:


But there still is limit to zone name length which needs to be enforced.
