  	fun_call_w_exception: Called function throws an exception of type UnknownLoggingDestination. [show details]
23    isc::log::initLogger();
25    int result = RUN_ALL_TESTS();
27    return result;
    ::testing::InitGoogleTest(&argc, argv);
24    // See the documentation of the KEA_* environment variables in
25    // src/lib/log/README for info on how to tweak logging
  	fun_call_w_exception: Called function throws an exception of type isc::InvalidOperation. [show details]

As of Feb 1 2015 (last Coverity run) there are 11 places where this occurs. Surrounding the initLogger() call with a proper try catch should clean them up.

There are also some in the logger test code but they may require more work.

Other thoughts from mail with Stpehen:

a) We can take the opportunity to make all (except the logging tests,
see below) of the "" files in the tree identical.

b) Wrapping the initLogger() call in a try/catch seems logical. The
later files call the isc::util::unittests::run_all() which includes the
try/catch wrapper. However adding the initLogger() call to that would
end up having the logging code calling the utilities code and the
utilities code calling the logging code - which seems messy.

c) You could also look at ticket #3605 when you do this work - renaming
initLogger() to avoid confusion.
