iptables prints logs in my local screen

I added this rule in iptables:
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -s --dport 80 -j LOG
Some other rules like this were added too.

"/var/log/messages" is fine, the problem is that on local screen (not ssh) every log entry is being printed, making impossible the use of local terminal.

How can I change that?

edit /etc/init.d/klogd and change KLOGD to:

KLOGD="-c 1"
