As much as I hate to say this, you should really go over to the log4j
list and ask them. They may say it's your application, but they may also
give you some tips on how it could be your application. I'm pretty
familiar with log4j and I've never seen logging statements swallowed.
sometimes they take a few seconds to actually get flushed to the log
file, but I've never seen them stay in a buffer forever.

Have you specifically configured Tomcat to use log4j for logging? If
not, then Tomcat is probably not interfering with your logging.
