Good catch.
I'd offer to add a root-only test to make sure the log file is
created as advertised, but would rather first add another config-file
option: to specify where the log file goes.

However, first things first:

Here's a patch that adds two blocks, neither pretty,
but with less duplication than the 3rd alternative,
which duplicates both the snprintf and the result comparison.
(of course, I'll use only one of them)

BTW, this also eliminates the uses of PATH_MAX that were
vestiges of a messy rebase.  Now we test against maxlen.

Of these two, I prefer the latter (slightly less duplication).
Do you care?
