Zope doesn't log anything until it is able to get to the point where it
sets the effective uid.  This is of course useless on Windows and in
most cases on UNIX when you're not running Zope under the root account.
If anyone has some patches which preserves the spirit of this behavior
but allows logging to happen sooner, they're welcome.

Or bin/runzope.
