[New-bugs-announce] [issue45106] Issue formating for log on Linux machines

New submission from Andrew Suttle <andrewsuttle56 at gmail.com>:

Using the format option for Python logging works fine on all windows machines:

logging.basicConfig(filename='log.log', encoding='utf-8', level=logging.DEBUG,format='%(asctime)s : %(message)s ')

But error occurs on Linux mint 64 20.2 using Python 3.8 when the % symbol in the format causes a problem.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.8/idlelib/run.py", line 559, in runcode
exec(code, self.locals)
