I'm guessing you are using log4cxx-0.9.7 which is considerably out of 
date and is discouraged for new users at 
http://logging.apache.org/log4cxx.  However there is no similar 
disclaimer on the logging services download site and I will correct 
that in the next few days.  The current CVS HEAD which will become the 
0.9.8 does check log4cxx.properties first and continues to check 
log4j.properties for compatibility with 0.9.7.  Checking 
log4j.properties will likely be deprecated with the 0.9.8 release and 
will not be performed in subsequent releases.

I don't recall if the introduction was broken even for 0.9.7 or if I 
broke it relative to 0.9.7.  I expect to be refreshing the web site in 
a day or so and will elaborate.
