I'm not sure if you already got an answer to this yet, but anyway, it's 
because rlog is seeing the -rXXXX as a flag. One way round this is to put the 
path to the file starting with a dash;

/router/bin/rlog /path/to/-rEFR-00000004147

or (assuming it is in cwd)
/router/bin/rlog ./-rEFR-00000004147

Hope this helps,
