Yeah, I think it's been that way all along.

For example, many windows system have *only* that message in the eventlog,
and nothing else... Which is kind of strange.

It could be interesting to have it write it *to the logfile* though, since
it'd then at least be in the same place as the others. As in special-casing
this one message, and just ignore logging it in case it fails. But think
we're fine just dropping the level.
