    Does ddclient's log record to syslog every update attempt, or only when the IP changes?

    I ran ddclient -deamon=0 and got, at the end:

    SUCCESS:  mydomain.com: skipped: IP address was already set to xx.xx.xx.xx

    But if I run ddclient (deamon), I don't get that line printed to my syslog (with syslog=yes).

    Just for the record, I got to this point by manually changing the /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache file. I manually inserted my current IP address, because I was getting this warning in the log:

    WARNING:  file /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache, line 3: Invalid Value for keyword 'ip' = ''

      You only get that message when the option verbose is enabled.
