Hi Rox,

Are you stopping logback when your application is stopped (and then 
started)? The conextDestroyed method of 
javax.servlet.ServletContextListener is a good place for invoking such 

import javax.servlet.ServletContextListener;
import javax.servlet.ServletContextEvent;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
import ch.qos.logback.classic.LoggerContext;

public class MyServletContextListener implements
                                       ServletContextListener {

   public void contextInitialized(ServletContextEvent sce) {

   public void contextDestroyed(ServletContextEvent sce)  {
     LoggerContext lc =
               (LoggerContext) LoggerFactory.getILoggerFactory();

Please let us know if stopping logback as described above helps.
