Bug description:
  While trying to identify rogue processes that periodically write log
  data unnecessarily I identified that zeitgeist is appending DEBUG
  messages to the /home/$user/.cache/zzeitgeist/daemon.log  (see
  attached log).

  Logging messages to a debug log is useful, however on production
  release code I don't expect to see DEBUG messages being written to log
  files:

  1.  If they are for debugging only then they should be inhibited in 
production quality code.
  2.  Unnecessary debug messages to logs cause additional unwanted writes to 
the disk - when on battery power this can cause laptops to spin drives up and 
waste power.  

  Since we are trying to reduce the power consumption I am requesting
  that debug messages are not written to this log unless debug is
  explicitly turned on.

  How to reproduce:

  On an installed system observe the daemon.log get DEBUG messages
  appended to it over time.  Occurs on idle and non-idle systems.
