Getting duplicate messages from nxlog on Windows

The following config is working for me to send windows event logs only for a specific Event Log source application, but it is sending duplicate messages for every Event Viewer event/entry. Can anybody see what the problem is with my config (below)? Running nxlog-ce-2.8.1248

Syslog facility lost while sending long messages

I'n using nxlog to send logs from Windows Event Log to rsyslogd.

To identify my Windows hosts, i use local6 facility. So they are logged to a separate folder based on IP and facility: local6 messages are logged to /var/log/hosts/windows/SERVER_IP/remote.log, all other facilities (non-local6) are logged to /var/hosts/linux/SERVER_IP/remote.log

High precision timestamps

I'm looking at ways to get high precision (with fractions of seconds) timestamps out of nxlog. If application provides these, it's of course easy to get this data into nxlog, but it's not easy to get it out - strftime function you can format timestamps with doesn't support fractions of seconds. Am I right?
