That is just the default. If you want to overwrite the file, you can 
either do:

[log file="blah" create=1]


[log file=">blah"]

They're equivalent.

The "process" option, if set to "nostrip", will cause the log tag to 
refrain from stripping out newlines and leading and trailing whitespace.

You can see this all yourself by looking at the code for "sub log" in
