Logs not flushing to file on process.exit #122

Problem, described in pull request #65, logging something to file appender and ending process right after results in missing logs.

@jengler has fixed this issue in 0.6.13 - you have to wrap your process.exit in a call to log4js.shutdown, to give log4js file streams a chance to finish writing.

log4js.shutdown(function() { process.exit(); });

Flush on exit #195

@nomiddlename does this also flush to loggly? I was trying to find a way to flush messages to loggly before exiting, and it seems the only viable solution is setTimeout.

The Loggly appender doesn't register a shutdown function, which is probably the issue there.

@nomiddlename would you welcome a PR?
