The windows implementation also emits warning messages that should be 
fixed up too since we don't want to emit anything to interfere the 
application logging.  The default logging configuration (default level 
is INFO) should apply to the application logging and the runtime like 
this case should have a different default level (e.g SEVERE) so that our 
implementation can use the appropriate level rather than forcing to use 
FINE etc.  This is something for future enhancement (I'll file a RFE).

For this bug, have you considered setting the level to SEVERE and change 
its default instead of changing to FINE?
