Hi Paul,

Logback components should use the status manager for their internal

The fact that your custom appender references a logger will not affect
the way it works except that the log messages originating from within
your appender or from one of its dependencies will be discarded.

You have 3 options:

1) use the status manager for internal messages
2) retrieve loggers anew until a real logger instance is returned (and
not an NOPLogger)
3) place your custom appender in another configuration file as
explained in http://slf4j.org/codes.html#substituteLogger
