      Description

      Apparently the fix for https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1222 is causing a new issue when log4j-jul is enabled:

      2016-09-28 16:54:29,300 Thread-1 WARN Unable to register Log4j shutdown hook because JVM is shutting down. Using SimpleLogger

      If I follow the chain of inheritance of `SimpleLogger`, the top-level interface is `org.apache.logging.log4j.Logger` from the -api jar, not `org.apache.logging.log4j.core.Logger` from the -core jar.
