You didn't tell which version of log4cxx you are using, it might be
worth it to test with a current master.

How did you configure log4cxx before that call? Like with your class
example at the bottom, you first need to configure and that retrieve a

This looks like two problems: First log4cxx is throwing some
MutexException because it can't create a necessary mutex instance
using APR. That shouldn't happen and is either related to how you use
log4cxx, e.g. you didn't configure it it properly, or there might be
something broken regarding APR, log4cxx and whatever. So I suggest to
first look into why that exception gets thrown using some debugger, so
that you don't rely on the string error message being created, but are
able to see the return value of apr_thread_mutex_create. Have a look
at the CTORs of "mutex.cpp", one of them is used and throwing the

The second problem seems to be that the CXA guard doesn't seem to be
released ever for some reason. That shouldn't happen as well and might
mean that you have some problems regarding multi-threading, some
deadlock or such. That as well heavily depends on how you actually
configure log4cxx and such.

Maybe I'm missing something, but the configuration itself looks OK to
me. Where and how do you create instances of class A? Your problem
could again be related to multiple threads creating multiple instances
of class A, configuring log4cxx multiple time.
