The examples included in the configuration file are the best that I have. 
Do you need something else? If you could describe what you're trying to do 
in more detail then perhaps I can help more, and add more examples to the 
config file or wiki.

In the latest SVN trunk you can log to a file instead of the event log, 
but I recommend that you do use the event log, and just reduce the detail 
level if necessary. I'm surprised that the level of logging is excessive. 
Which version of the client are you using? Could you give some examples of 
messages that you don't think should be in the event log?

Cheers, Chris.
