ok. Good.

Actually if I remember correctly the docs says that log4j.properties is
optional. The doc must also say that cactus.properties is only needed on
the client side. 

Feel free to point me the location in the doc that is wrong and I'll

It's described in the config how to. The only config file is
log4j.properties which you need to put in your classpath. The best
solution for this (check the classpath howto or config howto) is to put
the log4j conf file in your webapp WEB-INF/classes directory so that it
is in your CP by default.

That's normal, it is not in your CLASSPATH. As you know, "being in the
CP" for a single resource means that the directory where it is located
is in the CP and .../default/lib is not in the CP.

It's not needed on the server side and is even optional on the client
side if you pass the needed properties as system properties (-D). Check
the config how to on the web site.

It seems to me you missed the config how to. If not, I would be happy to
improve it on your suggestions ;-)
