If you type

log using mylog

you will see the log was set to text. The preference doesn't carry to the GUI it seems.

I want the logfile to be in my working folder and of course that folder changes over time.  I know I can work around it, but I don't want to have to consciously ensure that it is saved as a text file rather than smcl.  Something like that perhaps should be in Preferences.
