Thanks for spotting this. Unfortunately, this typo was only in the email:

pc# ls src/main/resources/
com  log4j.properties

So for being in the classpath it is sufficient to have it packaged in the jar, 
isn't it?

It ought to be something simple but before further digging into my setup 
details I want to make sure there isn't something special for tomcat. Something 
in ${catalina.base}/conf or conflicts with tomcat's logging system.
