The behavior mentioned is consistent with configuring multiple instances of
log4j writing to the same DailyRollingFileAppender.  The behavior and
attachment suggests that the platform is a Unix and not Windows XP as reported.
 Having multiple instances of any file appender write to the same path name is
known to be error-prone and is strongly discouraged and unsupported.

If multiple instances are writing to the same file names, one instance may
rename a file while another instance continues to write to it.  When the second
instance attempts to roll over its working file, it fails since the target file
already exists.

Unless the problem is not related to multiple instances and additional
information is provided, the report should be marked INVALID.
