I take this is the intention, however it does not work that way.
As far as I can read the code, logdir is set to workdir if the
latter is defined. End of story. There is no code appending the
directory of the router to the logdir, like in sub writegraphics():

my $rrd = "$$cfg{'logdir'}$$rcfg{'directory'}{$router}$router.rrd";
...                       ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is not hard to fix (unless I'm mistaken, and this is some
error of mine), but the behaviour is not good. In my opinion,
log-files (or RRD archives) should be stored in logdir/target.log
if LogDir is defined, and workdir/directory/target.log if not.

Am I horribly mistaken (could be; I should have left 3 hours ago)?
