      Description

      SocketAppender crashes log4j with StackOverflowException when the server where the log file should be sent is not accessible. It looks like toString() contains recursion.

      This also happens in 2.11.2 (even though log shows 2.11.0).

      This does not happen in 2.8.2 ( toString() methods were not there in that version)
