Hello Eli,

I was unsuccessful in this assignment (so far at least). I suspect
the answer is that GTK is using structured logging, but that is
just a wild guess at this point.

[I don't know how to do source-level debugging of code that I
didn't build myself. Both glib and Gtk+ on my system were
built/installed by the distribution's package manager and I have
only the source code from upstream, not the source code for the
exact versions on my system.]

I did ascertain that the log handler `my_log_handler' that we
install in the code snippet above is never called.

For testing purposes, I also installed a catch-all handler, with
g_log_set_default_handler(), and that doesn't get called either.

I have no direct experience at all with either glib or Gtk+, but
the documentation at [1] [I don't know for what version this is
for, or if it's even relevant], seems to say that
g_log_set_handler() has no effect if structured logging is turned
on. It seems to say that structured logging is in effect if

There is some indication that Gtk+3.22.8 might use the new
structured logging. For example:

  $ grep -rn "G_LOG_USE_STRUCTURED" /data/projects/vc/gtk+-3.22.8/              
-DG_LOG_USE_STRUCTURED=1                \
-DG_LOG_USE_STRUCTURED=1                \
-DG_LOG_USE_STRUCTURED=1                        \
-DG_LOG_USE_STRUCTURED=1                        \

I don't have any more direct evidence at this stage. I might press
on with this enquiry, but I admit I am way out of my depth at this
