syslog-ng-config errors

I've decided to run syslog-ng on my cygwin installation. I updated to latest
version When I run syslog-ng-config I get four errors 
setfacl : illegal acl entries

Is this to be expected ?

I then modified syslog-ng.conf to change root group to Administrators as I don't
have a root group in /etc/groups.
When I start syslog-ng daemon via cp/services, it starts then immediately stops. 
The logfile states

Error binding socket; addr='AF_UNIX(/dev/log)', error='Bad file descriptor (9)'
Error initializing source driver; source='applications'

Is there anything I can do to fix this ?
