Where are EntLib v4 settings? (Logging block)

I've been playing with the logging app block using the Enterprise Library configuration editor in VS2008 (right-clicking on the app.config), and it seems really useful. On our production servers though VS isn't installed and we'd need to modify the config files directly. I was surprised to see that the connection string for my database trace listener didn't actually appear in my app.config - anyone know where the application actually picks this value up from at runtime?

There's a WinForms version of the configuration tool that you can use in your servers.

The connection strings should be stored in the standard connectionStrings section, unless you've chosen a connection string from the machine.config file.
