    Description

      We have an application that uses a third-party library which seems to reconfigure Log4J according to its needs. This worked for quite some years with various Log4J versions.

      After upgrading from Log4J 2.17.1 to 2.17.2 a call to the library immediately stops logging completely in the sense that no further logging is performed until restarting the JVM.

      We've tried to identify the change that leads to the problem. Our best guess is PropertyConfigurator, line 164 in

      https://github.com/apache/logging-log4j2/commit/73a2cd1cd0e94c7f4f36e4ac9dc72380d30750ef#diff-607596a6cadd10faf2dbeefc4e03092264b8e0dbe23fb89ffa6505d644602c9dR164

      Note that according to semantic versioning such breaking changes should not occur when only the patch version is incremented.
