My guess is that this is happening because the default testsuite harness
in Automake 1.13 has switched from the old serial one (which didn't
create any log file) to the "new" parallel one (present since Automake
1.11).  If you want to re-enable the use of the serial harness you'll
have to use the 'serial-tests' automake option (only available since
Automake 1.12, sorry!).  Can you confirm the problem disappears if that
option is enabled?
