Default Prime.log file size

I was just going through my prime95 files and saw that the prime.log file size was 597 KB. I remembered having read something about that file in the undoc.txt, looked again, and found this:

I guess that either there is a bug with the code or the limit was removed/changed. Does anyone have a clue about this?
