Is this still true with latest GIT ?

When i re-arranged the libvirtd startup code last week I think I may
have accidentely fixed the issue. Previously the libvirt drivers would
get initialized in the qemudInitialize() call, and this was done before
loading the libvirtd config file and thus before logging was setup.
With latest code, driver initialization is moved out of qemudInitialize
and is absolutely the last thing libvirtd does during startup. There's
not really any way to move the logging configuration further forward
than it is now
