It's a bug in the public release. At some point I was playing with an 
idea of automatically generating a log file when certain types of issues 
were encountered (typically server bugs). I accidentally left this code 
enabled and I didn't notice because my own server is apparently too 
stable to trigger these log files. (Ironically, the content of these log 
files isn't useful in most cases.)

The best you can do is to fetch the latest test release: Hold down ⌥ 
when clicking “Check Now” in the Software Update preferences pane. 
I'll probably have to make a new public release, but I'm not sure when 
that's going to happen (it's a school holiday this week in Denmark).

Sorry about the inconvenience of this bug.
