Yeah, I think it's been that way all along.
It might be reasonable to reduce "logger shutting down" to DEBUG1
or so, now that the facility has been around for awhile.
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.
