Change expect.logfile on runtime using 
ini_set("expect.logfile") more than once leave old files 

Check it using strace or similar.

Reproduce code:
ini_set("expect.logfile", "logexpect1.out");

$stream = expect_popen("telnet");

fclose ($stream);

ini_set("expect.logfile", "logexpect2.out");

$stream = expect_popen("telnet");

fclose ($stream);


Expected result:
check with strace.
File descriptor is not closed after changing expect output
