Ignore my post, I just misread your description.
Verify you don't have filters attached to your handlers.
If you have a hierarchy of loggers, make sure their level are all 
correctly set
For instance if you have a 'foo.bar' logger, you may set 'foo.bar' level 
to DEBUG, logs can still be filtered by 'foo' if this logger level is 
still ERROR.
