Try removing all appenders except for the console appender from the <root> 
logger and see it works.  Reducing the extraneous variables will help 
pinpoint the problem more efficiently.  Also, I assume you had put 
log4j.properties in the classpath and let log4j load it automatically.  I 
imagine you did the same for log4j.xml.  I think Log4j loads properties 
files preferentially to XML files (I could be wrong here).  Given that, it 
is possible that there were no other log4j.properties files in the 
classpath other than yours, but there may have been another log4j.xml file 
in the classpath that might be overriding yours.  That's just a shot in the 
dark as to why it worked with the properties file and not the XML file.

BTW, you should use <level> rather than <priority>.
