Apparently it uses dribble (and also nothing is written to file):
(%i3) appendfile("Test.log");
/* Starts dribbling to Test.log (2011/11/5, 20:40:47).*/                                                         
some stuff ...

(%i6) closefile();
/*Finished dribbling to Test.log.*/

Still Test.log is empty.
