It was a bug in the sense that it was an unintentional change from 1.7.9's
behavior.  There are a *lot* of actions that could undermine the functional
integrity of a server and we can't log all of them.  Just logging wizzings
seemed a good compromise; as Dave pointed out in his bug report, it's pretty
disconcerting for every toading/recycling of a player to generate such a log
