Hello, After updating 4.7 → 5.2 every 20-40mins ERROR appears,

ERROR [im_msvistalog|winlog] Couldn't retrieve eventlog fields from xml, EvtRender() failed; The data area passed to a system call is too small.

Is it safe to ignore?

    Thanks!

    It seems, that im_msvistalog struggle with this error, when trying to parse huge EventData fields from

    Microsoft-Windows-PowerShell/Operational    EventID=4104
    

    EventData in this events contains ScriptBlockText which is very huge and contains special characters.

    Is it possible to fix this?

    Or disable EventData parsing somehow in im_msvistalog for specific EventID ?

    I can provide event sample, to reproduce ERROR btw
