No it doesn't the -l makes nALFS log the status window (the default is
to not), the -L just changes the default log file name.

Here is an excerpt from the nALFS help menu:
    -l, --log-status-window       Toggle logging of status window (off).
    -L, --log-file <file>         Use <file> for logging

Then something must be wrong on your copy then or your looking in the
wrong place, it's usually stored in the .nALFS directory of the user
running nALFS.
