I've noticed that broker is not starting if I don't have eventlog service running. Is this an known issue?

If the Eventlog service is not running, Broker will not start and will produce the error message "Could not initialize audit system" in debug output. An example debug output:

Windows Eventlog service needs to be started on the client.
