After hitting send, I realised  I forgot to describe what happens.  Both 
appenders log several entries in the same file, without rolling over.  
DailyROllingFileAppender with S in the pattern, and RolingFileAppender 
with a filesize of 1 and ImmediateFlush on.   So my problem is to get 
log4j to check for rollover _every_time, and actually do it :)

Sorry for the multiple posting.
