Sure it does; it simply writes to ~/.purple/logs/ blindly.  If
~/.purple/logs is a symlink to some other location, it will write to
that location.  Note that this is *precisely* how older Gaim versions
and Pidgin are coerced into logging to the same place.  When you run
Pidgin for the first time, it moves your logs to ~/.purple/logs, and
creates a symlink to ~/.purple/logs in ~/.gaim.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
