The message that "user-mapping.xml" does not exist and thus will not be
read is logged at the debug level. You can expect that and many other
potentially-confusing status messages, stack traces, etc. to be logged at
the debug level. They are there to establish context and inform you (or
developers) of what is happening internally. You can expect debug-level
messages to be low-level and to contain information that may only be useful
to those already familiar with the internals of Guacamole.
