I recently added some activerecord code to a stand-alone application
that uses Log4R.  I'm getting some weird conflicts.

The code below demonstrates one of the problems I see... if you remove
the line : "require_gem 'activerecord'" the code executes fine.  If you
have it in the code you will get the following error:

C:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/log4r/logger.rb:109:in `outputters=':
undefined method `clear' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
	from C:/dev/src/scratch/scratch.rb:11

Here is the code:

require 'log4r'
include Log4r
require "rubygems"
require_gem "activerecord"

#require "database/active_storage"

# create a logger named 'mylog' that logs to stdout
mylog = 'mylog'
puts mylog.inspect
mylog.outputters = Outputter.stdout

# Now we can log.
def do_log(log)
  log.debug "This is a message with level DEBUG" "This is a message with level INFO"
  log.warn "This is a message with level WARN"
  log.error "This is a message with level ERROR"
  log.fatal "This is a message with level FATAL"

mylog.level = ERROR
mylog.error  "BLAHBLAH"

Any insight on what's going on here?

I think the activerecord use Ruby's Inner Logger to overwrite the
Log4r's Logger.
