The fix looks fine.   The WeakReference and System.gc() call was to help 
reproduce the test failure.  I wonder if it's really needed to be 
retained in the test (or better to remove it).

There has been a few test failures due to this eager GC issue running in 
-server -Xcomp mode (I guess they are from the hotspot nightly 
testing).   It might worth to run all logging tests with -server -Xcomp 
to find out if all test failures due to this issue are reported and fix 
them all together.
