Dear Logback team,


          First of all I am not very sure is it correct way to ask questions
regarding logback. I couldn't find any forum. I thought of creating bug in
JIRA (http://jira.qos.ch/browse/LOGBACK <http://jira.qos.ch/browse/LOGBACK> )
but I don't have rights .... So I am dropping mail to given mail id... 


          Coming to bug : 


          I am trying to optimize logback.xml file in our environment.
Logging directory location we are specifying in more than one location so I
am trying to create a variable ( property ) to hold log directory and reuse.
Now problem is if path is "D:\seeta\log" then logback is stripping out all
back ward slashes and giving it as "D:seetalog". I know if I use forward
slash or double slash it works fine but I cannot control the user who use my
tool. Can you please help us in fixing it? 


          Working scenario 







          NON-Working Scenario




      <property name="log.dir" value="d:\seeta\log"/>









NOTE : I have attached logback.jar and configuration files. Here
{{logback_working.xml}} is existing configuration and trying to modify to {{
