Borislav Andruschuk commented on LBCLASSIC-177:

I've reviewed patch and found the piece of code that's not thread safe. Look at exceptionRepeatCount variable in appender, It can be modified from several threads without exclusive access in append method - you got race condition in this place. Variable should be just converted from class field to method local variable.

> We're using log4j successfully in financial B2B / B2C web applications for years. Now we would like to adopt Logback but therefore we need support for an asynchronous appender decorator like log4js AsyncAppender.
> Attached you can find my take on this kind of appender cobbled together from ideas and code from various places:
