Clarification needed on idp-warn.log

In the past, I understood that idp-warn.log is an extract from 
idp-process.log. Thus, following idp-process.log would also give me all 
warnings and errors.

Since we have upgraded to IdP 4, I came across situations where 
idp-warn.log contained messages that were missing from idp-process.log 
although others warnings appeared in it. (Unfortunately I didn't keep 
the examples.) That's also what a member of our federation reported.

Is this intended? If so what exactly shows up in idp-warn.log only?
Could you please clarify? Thanks a lot!
