I have created an SR for this problem - #7393.

I am also about to commit a patch that adds a semaphore to
(gen-log-message), the code that adds the messages. Although it may be
a better idea to move logging into a separate thread, and the
gen-log-message should communicate with that thread. If this becomes a
problem in the future, I will change it.
