           Summary: Application wide config chainsaw.xml overwritten when
                    Tab Identifier = PROP.hostname
           Product: Log4j
           Version: 1.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P4
         Component: chainsaw
        AssignedTo: log4j-dev@logging.apache.org
        ReportedBy: simon@baltovic.com


We use chainsaw to monitor various application across different servers, and to
help organise this visually we set the "Application-wide Preferences" -> "Tab
identifier" to "PROP.hostname". This allows us to arbitrarily group log messages
onto the same tab.

The problem here is that Chainsaw messages are then sent to a tab called
"Chainsaw", which then creates the config files "Chainsaw.colors",
"Chainsaw.properties" and "Chainsaw.xml". The last filename conflicts with the
application wide config file of the same name.

Depending on whether or not a user has applied layout changes to the "Chainsaw"
tab, and on which file is written to last when closing chainsaw, the application
wide file may or may not be overwritten with the Tab config file.

To remedy this, we've set the "Tab identifier" to "PROP.hostname -", but it's
kind of a messy solution. Would it not make more sense to name the global xml
config file to something more specific ie; chainsaw.settings.xml to match the
name of the properties file for instance?
