Indeed, in retrospect this should have been mentioned in UPGRADING. I  
also erroneously assumed that the webserver would be able to create  
new files in the same directory as the existing AS debug log.

I have fixed the issue in Git for the next release. We now only create  
a device-specific logger if we can actually successfully open a file  
for it first.

Thanks for the report.
