This seems to be a bug.  The %f log-format escape provides the full path
within the module when sending files, but does not when receiving files.
I'll look into fixing this, but in the meantime, my only suggestion is
to use a "pre-xfer exec" program and have it log the args that it
receives (which will let you prepend the destination dir manually).
