The file "weechat.log" is a "system" WeeChat log file, it is not managed by logger plugin, but by WeeChat itself. There is almost nothing in this file.

Other log files (logs of buffers) are managed by logger plugin and then use the option logger.file.path.

So for me this is not a bug, but normal behaviour.

weechat.log is always in ~/.weechat/weechat.log

It would be much better to get unified behavior for logging: all the logs should go into logger.file.path

Alternatively there should be command-line option available to specify desired weechat.log location or completely disable creation of this log file.
