It does, if not anything has gone horribly wrong. If you're on windows, 
that “clever” OS is “userfriendly” in not showing certain file 
extensions. Check if this is the case for you and deactivate that (in my 
opinion) stupid “feature“.

Just open the open dialogue and type in the whole name (i.e. 
<source>.log). It should then be opened, also if it is not shown in the 
file list.
