This pattern is correct and it works with log4net 1.2.9

As DateTime.ToString does not have a pattern that supports the day of
the week it is not possible to use RollPoint.TopOfWeek. This value
exists only because it exists in log4j and was ported over with the rest
of the code. Unlike DateTime.ToString equivalent java date pattern
renderer supports the day of week.
