I believe this is due to one of the variables in your my.cnf file.
You probably set it to 1, thinking this enabled it, but in actuality, the variable can be set by just putting it the my.cnf file
If it has an assignment, then the assignment is the file name to use.
I think there are several variables that this is the case for
For example, log and log_error
If you have log_error=1 or log=1 this would be the file
There may be others variables, but one of those is where I have seen the 1 file being created before
If it isn't one of those two (which it may not, since you said the header looks to be innodb), I would review all the variables that are set to =1, and see if that is the proper assignment
