I often need to force some quite specific logging configuration (since I use a lot of log4j
hacks) so I tend to set the "log4j.defaultInitOverride" system property either as an argument
to the JVM or in a static block in my main class (System.setProperty("log4j.defaultInitOverride",
"true");). Then I am free to programmatically configure log4j just so.

It follows, however, that if any of your libraries do something similar then you'll have to
sort them out!
