Logging locations galore...

I have edited the file /tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/custom-log4j.properties to have all the log files that are generated to be placed in /var/log/alfresco/then the file name.log

I'm getting two locations of where my files are being generated when I restart alfresco. From other posts on the forums its discouraged from editing the source files that actually place the log files to where they should go. Which alfresco employee's have said would be in the dir.root. Which they don't actually log there. (They are placed in my root), but NOT in the dir.root of the install.

That being said…What I really want is some granularity in file location for logging. I plan on implementing the logging into our syslog system and keeping it in /var/log/location keeps things nice and neat. Any ideas as to why I am getting two locations for logging?
