Comment out lines in syslog.conf that send messages to logged in "root"
users. These messages were appearing in linktest output to users because the linktest proxy runs on ops as root with a "full" tty ("-t -t") which apparently makes it look like a logged in user. Since no one logs in as root on ops, there was no legit recipient for these messages anyway. Since the messasge all go to log files, I don't think we are losing anything.
