I found the following in src/logging.c:

static INLINE char *stage_two_of_logging_changed_files(void)
        if (find_element_status(current_package) != RUN_STATUS_DONE) {
                Debug_logging("Not doing stage two - "
                        "package status is not DONE.");
                return NULL;


This condition is true when <stageinfo><user>blah</user></stageinfo> is
used in the profile I sent earlier. When <user> is not used (ie; when
using <base> or whatever else), this conditition is never true, thus
logging takes place.

I don't have time to further debug this today, hopefully somebody else
has an idea what is going on?
