logging package log_test3.py problem

My system:
    MSW XP professional
    Python 2.3.3
    logging package: 0.4.9.2

My problem:
    The log_test3.py script, provided with the logging package distribution,
generates an unexpected message:
        No handlers could be found for logger "root"

Here is the complete trace from running the log_test3.py script:

========================================

========================================

I expect the Windows NT EventLog handler to fail since I am running under an
account that does not have Windows Registry update privileges.

However, I did not expect to see the  message:

No handlers could be found for logger "root"



Also, I have not been able to get a demo script to work that uses
logging.config.fileConfig with custom handlers I have written.  Is this
permissable?  If so, how?  Here is a sample error I'm seeing:

NameError: name 'Details_Log' is not defined
