I'm afraid I'm running BB with this package manually installed.

The success messages make me happy too.  By errors, I meant lines like

$ log.txt < grep 'Cannot find device "pppoe-wan"' | wc -l

presumably because /etc/init.d/sqm is still assuming pppoe-wan (or so)
exists, and dies noisily because ppp hasn't started yet.

openwrt apparently uses busybox logd daemon (in userspace).  I
discovered it doesn't use files by default and has a small buffer in
memory, accessed using the `logread` command.

Kernel log buffer (`dmesg` command) is separate.  It can be sized
using the kernel boot option... log_buf_len.
