Thanks for reporting, this bug has been rendered obsolete by the recent
switch the new logging system. Can you try current master and see if it
works for you there? (It won't work in the latest stable release, but
the master branch contains a fix).

That having said, I am no friend of the MachineUI. It's clunky,
non-standard output is hard to parse and you can never be sure that a
line is actually limited to 1 line output anyway.

What would people say about deprecating the MachineUI and instead having
json output that would be easier to parse as a machine-readable log
