The problem is that the log-file option is not supported by GnuPG 1.4;
it was introduced in some 2.x version.

GnuPG 1.4.22 will look for the following files in order:

and it will take the first one it sees and stop there. By creating
gpg.conf-1, it will never get to gpg.conf and take the unsupported
option from there. Any configuration for GnuPG 1.4.22 will have to be
done in gpg.conf-1, and a 2.x version will still pick up the log-file
option from gpg.conf.
