Trying to skip a console appender- want all errors trapped by ZK to log to my log4j file appender?

I'm sure this is simple simple I'm missing. I don't want any errors dumping to my catalina.out file under Tomcat. Any errors thrown, runtime or otherwise, I want dumping to my rolling file appender. I removed my console out appender and set my root logger to my file appender but I can't seem to get errors thrown to it.

Obviously ZK is trapping errors since for example if I do a divide by zero error I'll see a zk popup window with the error displayed. I want the actual error though to show up in my file appender.

Here is what I've tried so far:

log4j.rootLogger=debug, app-appender

log4j.logger.org.springframework=info, app-appender
log4j.logger.com.ncs=debug, app-appender
log4j.logger.org.ibatis=info, app-appender
log4j.logger.org.zkoss=debug, app-appender

log4j.appender.app-appender.layout.ConversionPattern= %d{MM/dd/yy hh:mm:ss a } %-5p %C %M - %m%n

Not sure if all this is needed as well but I also added:

I haven't dug into the source code but is it possible that after ZK traps a runtime exception that it's not attempting to log it with java.util.logging? I understand how if it were simply rethrowing the error I'd have issues getting it logged to my appender, but it's obviously trapping it first since it's showing a zk popup, so I'd assume it attempts to log the exception as well?

As I know, ZK uses the java standard logger (i.e java.util.loggin). You can't give ZK a log4j configuration.
