Hi Ceki,
I tried to implement the test-base like this but nothing was written  
to the logfile. The files are created but they have a size of 0 bytes.

Please have a look at http://apps.sourceforge.net/trac/sulky/browser/trunk/sulky-junit/src/main/java/de/huxhorn/sulky/junit/LoggingTestBase.java
My futile attempt is commented out.
I'm sure I miss something really stupid :p

Beside that, is there some easier way to just restart the usual  
logging configuration process instead of manually doing it like I do  
in resetLogging?
