idp.loglevel.idp DEBUG in production - 100% CPU usage

Under v3.3.2 when I set idp.loglevel.idp to DEBUG in logback.xml (on a production server with about 84k sessions per day) and reload the configuration the cpu usage for the java process immediately spikes from ~5% to 100% and the whole framework collapses with timeouts to AJP, etc... I don't recall this behavior under v2. Enabling DEBUG in production is rare but is sometimes needed. None of the other Logging Level shortcuts have this effect. Should I report this as a bug and if so where?
