That's a bug. The constructor for LoggingEvent takes a Message and a throwable. If the throwable is present (meaning it was specified on the call) then it should be used. If it is null then the throwable in the Message should be used. The same thing should be done when filtering, but there the Message, if present on the api call used, needs to be decomposed into the raw message format and parameters so that calls that don't have a Message don't create one.
Fixing this problem is pretty easy.

>> If you notice there really is no extra overhead since in my fork Logback's getLogger() always returns a MessageLogger. It isn't really wrapped. No kludgy code is needed. Since MessageLogger extends Logger anyone calling LoggerFactory.getLogger() will work just fine. The wrapper is only needed if a Logger implementation returns a Logger. Then MessageLoggerFactory will wrap it.

In my fork. Look at the org.slf4j.message package. With Logback the only difference between MessageLoggerFactory and LoggerFactory is that the return type is MessageLogger. A user calling LoggerFactory would still get a MessageLogger but the return type is Logger.
