The file logger cannot log messages that arrive before the plugins are 
initialized, since the file logger is a plugin. There is no easy way to fix 
this. Logging could be moved to core, but there still would be some messages 
that come before the core configuration is parsed, thus before the file logger 
is initialized or skipped.
