Problem using win32evtlogutil.ReportEvent()

I'm trying to do "custom event log writing"
(as per p. 360 of _Python Programming on Win32_) like so:
self._svc_name_, # Application name
servicemanager.PYS_SERVICE_STARTED, # Event ID
0, # Event category
(self._svc_name_, "") # The inserts
...but the description that I get in the event detail is:
The description for Event ID ( 4098 ) in Source ( Whatever ) could not
be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): Whatever, .
Has anyone gotten this to work? Could you please post sample code?
I notice that this problem was posted in Dec 2000 and again this past
Jan-Feb, but I didn't see any solutions.
Thanks in advance.
