From [[mw:Talk:API:Query - Lists]]:
The response XML always returns 'logid="0"'

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=logevents (logid & pageid are 0)
Returning log_id to be zero is correct, since at the moment, we're faking the column until it's live on Wikimedia. Not sure what's causing the page_id to be zero, but I imagine it could have been an oversight leading to regression when I worked around the absence of log_id.
The page_id value is correct where applicable, i.e. where the log item corresponds to a title that exists. In general, page_id is of limited use when inspecting logs.
The correct log_id values can be returned when log_id is live on Wikimedia, as previously noted.

Has this happened yet? If not, when will it happen?
No. No rush on it, as it doesn't look like a particularly pleasant operation.
