No log entries in ULS Viewer for real-time monitoring mode [SharePoint]

Recently we found that if you are using the updated ULS Viewer (16.0.3129.1000) from Microsoft (, and you have changed the default logging path in Central Admin, then you may find that the real-time monitoring in ULS Viewer does not show any log entries. Opening a specific trace file however works fine.

Changing the logging path in Central Admin back to the default value and real-time monitoring in ULS Viewer starts to work again. This appears to be a bug in this version of the ULS Viewer.
