Another Bogus Engine Log Entry

Running Keyboard Maestro 8.0.4 (8.0.4) on macOS 10.11.6.

@peternlewis, I am seeing hundreds of this single event, about a KM Variable that does NOT exist:

2017-12-20 20:39:36 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:39:53 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:40:31 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:40:36 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:41:10 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:41:26 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:41:34 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:42:02 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:42:05 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:43:12 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:43:21 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:43:26 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:43:33 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:44:09 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large
2017-12-20 20:44:20 Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource” excluded from environment to ensure the environment is not too large 

When I search for this variable, "KMVAR_TEST__WebSource", it is NOT found in either the Preferences > Variables panel, NOR in any macro which I do a global search/find:

I tried a restart the following, but nothing helped:

  1. Set the KM Variable to ""
  2. Set the KM Variable to "ADDED 2017-12-20 20:43 GMT-0600"
  3. Restart the KM Engine.

How do I make KM stop making this bogus log entry?

I figured it out: The KM Variable name is actually “TEST__WebSource”.
I found and cleared this variable, and then the logs stopped.

The log entry is misleading:
Variable “KMVAR_TEST__WebSource”

It should have read:
Variable “TEST__WebSource”

Maybe I should have immediately recognized this, but I’m going to guess that many other KM users would also be misled. Perhaps a change in the logging code is indicated.
