Stop spam logging from gnome-session?

Is there a simple way to stop the spam logging in /var/log/messages that comes from gnome-session in FC 16?

A FC 16 bug (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=755135) is that gnome-session spams /var/log/messages with DEBUG messages. In the discussion of that bug, a workaround was offered:

Here's a simple workaround:

Create the file:

/etc/rsyslog.d/gnome-session-log.conf

With contents:
Code:
 :programname,isequal,"gnome-session" ~
Quote:

That will throw away all messages from gnome-session.
I can't tell from the subsequent discussion whether that workaround should actually work. It didn't work for me. Should it have?

Yes, this should work.

Try to reboot.

You're right. I did it all from scratch and it worked. I must have made a syntax error or gotten file permissions wrong.

I'm surprised this bug hasn't been fixed by an update.
