Sorry, it doesn't work either. Till now i found the following problem

In TimeBasedRollingPolicy.java at start() there is a check where
modification date of the file is inspected

if (getParentsRawFileProperty() != null)

at this point the result  is always null. At FileAppender<E> the name of the
log file seems to be filled from configuration later than the check is run.
That's why modification time of the file is not retrieved, an file is never
rolled over.
