You are correct, 1.2.15

Hmmm, I thought I was using Sun's 1.6 but

java -version
java version "1.6.0_0"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.4.1) (6b14-1.4.1-0ubuntu12)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 14.0-b08, mixed mode)

I'll switch to Sun's and see if that makes a difference

While i haven't dove into the log4j code as you did, I too think this is
more likely to be a log4j bug than in my calling code, just because I've
kept adding more guards to make sure than none of the things I pass or
use are null.

More once I try the sun JVM
