maybe you should read it instead of omitting? There should be a line like:

  The default logging mode is now PCAP, use "-K ascii" to activate 
  the old default logging mode.

Starting with 2.4.1 the default is to use a pcap file, not the ascii as you
observe with 2.4.0 and before...

Best regards
