Description D'juan McDonald (domhnall) 2017-09-24 11:54:04 UTC
from ${URL}:

Date/time conversion specifiers are expanded after replacing buffer local variables in name of log files. In some cases, this can lead to an error in function strftime and a crash caused by the use of an uninitialized buffer.
> Workaround:
Unload the logger plugin: /plugin unload logger
