LogFilePatternReceiver can only load regular text log files, not
XML-based log files.  

To load XML-based load files, you can use the 'file-load log4j file'
menu, or pull the source for Log4j 1.3, build it and use
org.apache.log4j.xml.LogFileXMLReceiver (not yet available from the Web
Start distribution - will be available after the next log4j 1.3 alpha
release).

Subject: pluginDirectory cannot be null

I am running Chainsaw using the supplied batch file, and am getting
the dreaded "pluginDirectory cannot be null, yada yada" error message
on loading Chainsaw.   Here is my setup:

C:\bin\chainsaw>dir
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is C400-7795

So everything conceivable seems to be taken care of by the batch file.
Here is the configuration file I am using...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration >
<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/"
debug="true">
   <plugin name="LogFileReceiver"
class="org.apache.log4j.varia.LogFilePatternReceiver">
     <param name="fileURL" value="file:///h:/log.xml"/>
     <param name="timestampFormat" value="yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,SSS"/> 
     <param name="logFormat" value="TIMESTAMP LEVEL [LOGGER] MESSAGE"/> 
     <param name="name" value="foo"/>
     <param name="tailing" value="true"/> 
	 </plugin>
   <root>
      <level value="debug"/>
   </root>
</log4j:configuration>

What am I missing about why this isn't working?
