So the logging is different now, updated master on my Linux VM and with
nothing else changed in that environment which has been building with -ggdb.
Built OK but when I ran it I ended up with an unresponsive Gnucash, ended
up by force quitting. Looked at the trace file which was 1.6GB.
Looking at it, it looks like it is every single INFO, DEBUG message

Previously, to get more trace information I would start gnucash with
--debug and then control the module detail I wanted with a log.conf file.

Do I need to do something different now, always use a log.conf with every
entry set to info and then set individual modules to debug when required.
I have not tried this yet but will later to see how much is logged.
