First attempt to reproduce this failed, I observed this working correctly. I stepped through the code whilst it was running a second time, after clearing all my caches again and noticed it working fine with no obvious tells as to why it wouldn't work.

Is there something custom about the set up that reproduced this bug?

I was able to reproduce when I deleted the directories and not just the contents within, as was described in the repro steps. That lead me to observe that there were in fact several exceptions being thrown because the C:\ProgramData\GameMaker... folder was being accessed before it even existed. So in this instance I've ensured that folder is created before the log file is attempted to be accessed/written to/read from.
