The log4j 1.2 implementation (if I remember correctly) is susceptible  
to file loss if the rename operation fails.  The implementation in  
the CVS HEAD should be more resilient and should avoid rolling over  
if there is a failure in any of the renaming operations or on opening  
the new log file.  Unfortunately, the CVS HEAD is not binary  
compatible at this time with log4j 1.2.  However, if you could test  
the CVS HEAD under the same conditions and see if the problem occurs  
there, we can determine if it is a known problem or something new.
