The binary is built from source, so it should work fine as long as you 
have the latest pywin32 installed.

I'm afraid something here isn't correct - either the patches applied are 
incorrect meaning the logs aren't being redirected as expected, or the 
code isn't being executed.  It wasn't obvious to me that your patch was 
incorrect, so I can only speculate it isn't being loaded - but if you 
have any other explanations I'd like to hear them...

Alternatively, try again with the binary to confirm things work as 
expected, then move to the source version with no changes to ensure 
things *still* work in an identical fashion, and then make your code 
changes to change the functionality.
