Are you by any chance running from inside an editor, such as
emacs or even idle?  If the module somehow gets hold of a 
second sourcefile (and this looks like a copy tied to your
current process -- like the names for toplevel under emacs),
then this won't match the original __srcfile__.

You may wish to override the portion that finds a caller, so
that it will throw out, say, anything matching .*\logging\__init__.py([co])?
