beaconlog=false should cause it to log one beacon per network - if you're seeing a flood of networks you'll still get a lot of beacons logged.

Make sure you have 'false' in lower-case - usually I use != "true" but in this case it seems I used == "false" which could lead it to miss "FALSE" or "False".

It also should say if it's filtering beacons during startup.
