problem with debug messages in rxconsole

I have 2 computers: master and lowlevel. I log in master where I run roscore. I ssh to lowlevel to launch some nodes there. THe whole thing works fine so I guess the setup is configured properly.

I am trying to debug a node on the lowlevel computer, written in python. logdebug messages do not print anywhere: neither in the logfile, the screen or rxconsole.

In rxconsole, when I try to set the node's verbose level to debug, my node does not appear in the list of nodes.

If I init_node with log_level=rospy.DEBUG, the following message appears in the log file: "Unable to report rosout: time is not initialized. Have you called init_node()?" see complete log file here:

I don't believe the log level setting in rxconsole works for Python nodes.

I usually end up editing the script changing the message levels to INFO.
