This has probably been fixed in core CVS by this commit:

 * gst/gst.c:
  Don't use GST_INFO before the debug system is actually initialised
  (shouldn't do any harm, but won't print anything either, so we can
  just as well remove it).

 * gst/gstinfo.h:
  GST_CAT_LEVEL_LOG_valist(), which is our inline helper function for
  compilers that don't support variadic macros (such as MSVC), should
  check for debug_level <= __gst_debug_min as well, since that's the
  function called from all the level-specific GST_CAT_*_LOG_OBJECT()
  inline helper functions. Should improve performance a bit, but also
  makes sure uses of GST_INFO et.al are ignored if the debugging
  system isn't initialised yet (instead of printing an assertion
