A bunch of logging methods accept optional parameter exc_info, that is supposed to be either 'True' or a tuple of three elements (type, exc, tb).

If, however, someone passes an actual exception instance, Logger._log function will interpret it as True and get the current exception from sys.exc_info, ignoring the passed exception completely.

Attached is a patch that fixes this: if exc_info is an instance of BaseException, Logger._log creates the tuple out of it automatically.
