When logback.xml has a property file declaration.
keys/values from the property file are not cleaned out from the configuration... they are overwritten in case they already exist.
Which means that if the properties change while the application is loaded, and dynamically I reload the Logback configuration... the property file linked to it will only take into account new key or new values... removed key/value are still available in the context.
InterpretationContext allows the LoggerContext to use the properties but the reset() method on the LoggerContext doesn't flush properties loaded.
Is there a workaround? If so, pass the bug to Minor! I just found this annoying in case of a dynamical reload of configuration where even after reset, some setting are still present.
