The code that handles this in in org.apache.log4j.LogManager's static  
initializer.  The value log4j.configuration is expected to be either  
a URL or an resource identifier in the class path.  The debug log  
confirms that it is was not recognized as a URL and it could not be  
found on the classpath (where it would be looking inside the jars in  
the same way it would try to find org.apache.log4j.Logger.class).   
Since the java.net.URL class likely delegates to the OS on Windows,  
then invalid URL's (particular ones with backslashes) might be  
accepted that fail on other platforms.

Your options would be to set log4j.configuration to a file: URL (for  
example, file:///work/fop/entwicklung/log4j.properties), add the root  
directory to the classpath or add the log4j.properties files to one  
of the jars or directories already in the classpath.
