It only affects TRACE when used via the new methods introduced in Logger.
If used via a custom wrapper passing the correct FQCN it would work fine.

The passed FQCN is used to work through the stacktrace to determine the
original caller.

These methods incorrectly used the FQCN of the Level class rather than the
Logger class.  All the other log methods debug, info etc are defined in
Category.java which correctly passes its own FQCN to the forcedLog method.
