Looking at the code (src/macsys.lisp) it appears there is another
logging function, named appendfile. Here is the existing documentation:

 -- Function: appendfile (<filename>)
     Appends a console transcript to <filename>.  `appendfile' is the
     same as `writefile', except that the transcript file, if it
     exists, is always appended.

     `closefile' closes the transcript file opened by `appendfile' or

Try appendfile -- does that capture both input and output?
appendfile is implemented differently than writefile, maybe
one works and the other doesn't.
