[S] QUERY: why different $loglik[1] in survreg

perhaps this is a dumb question: I fitted two nested models with
survreg(), one with 1 and one with the same and seven other predictors.
As expected I get different $loglik[2] at MLE, but also the $loglik[1]
differ. Shouldn't they represent a null-model and thus be equal? Is this a
related problem to the deviance problem recently discussed?

thanks for any advice
best regards
