I don't know what the developers decided to do after a discussion
about this on the list a while ago, but for this new version with OTR
active you must override the default no logging policy on each and
every occasion you use it.

Having a log makes you vulnerable to seizure and search in
jurisdictions that allow it, the point of OTR is to make conversations
deniable and having them logged in plain text defeats that deniability
