If i set the parameter 'parseAsFlumeEvent' to 'true' when the kafka-console-consumer.sh reads the messages of the topic, it shows the events like this:

                                                            hostip10.1.0.17line_type senderid999923BD99Cevent_route SENDERmessage�2015 Jan 1 14:33:15 postfix-dsp/qmgr[5605]: 999923BD99C: from=<example@example.com>, size=1060, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

This is correct. The events are serialized by Avro. But setting the parameter value to 'false', kafka-console-consumer.sh shows only empty events instead of plain text. Is this parameter working with the false value?
