No logs on starting IDEA

Some of you may be having a problem starting IDEA 665 or 666.
If your console is visible, you see an exception about logging.
Even without a console, you may not get an idea.log file, and may not
see error alerts when IDEA throws an exception. If you want to fix this,
put these 2 files in idea/bin. One of them replaces a file already there.

Since I cannot seem to send attachments, I will put them in-line.

<param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %6p - %30.30c - %m \n"/>
END log.xml ================================================================== BEGIN log4j.dtd ================================================================== ]]>

END log4j.dtd ==================================================================

OK, it looks like they fixed the xml file, they just forgot to distribute the dtd file.
