the point is not where you are but what we have learnt :)

we now now that you current configuration of JCL is bridging correctly 
to log4j. therefore, you problems are on the other side of the bridge,
with log4j. 

you know need to do something similar for log4j: find each and every file and remove each one until log4j starts printing
it's warning. then add in a single file to a known

i understand that it's not your fault but for the record note also that
you'll find the design will lead to a performance degradation: string
concatenation is slow. the guard call (for example, isDebugEnabled) is
intended to allow slow operations such as string concatenation to be

can't see any obvious cause in the class

is it possible that common.util.Debug is being loaded by a different
classloader? in this case, it is possible that log4j will be picking up
a different file (see above). you can test this by
removing the file that you use for the classes that
work. if common.util.Debug still logs then it is using a separate
properties file.
