Open Console & select all logs, search for Disk Util, ee if it reports that.
I vaguely remeber there was a way to set DU's Logging level, but not how that was actually done.

Following up on BD's post, I see that my Tiger Disk Utility Log file is in ~/Library/Logs, for instance. It doesn't look like it gets rotated on a regular basis, so it can be pretty big. It's best to view it in the Console utility, select the data you want to keep, then do a File->Save Selection As... operation on the info.
Seems to be true also in Mountain Lion, so it's probably unchanged in between.
