The configurator will create the appender in response to the  
<appender> tag, process all the <param> tags by calling the  
corresponding set methods and then call activateOptions() when it  
encounters the </appender> end tag.

Take it out.  It is interpreting that as a request to call a method  
with the illegal name "setActivateOptions()".  That will throw an  
exception and I'm not sure that the rest of the configuration file  
will be processed.
