I do not have 4.0.1, so I will answer based on 4.0.5 - hopefully they are not that different (yes, I know that this is a very bad assumption to make with the 4.0.x versions).

Anyway, the default appender is the DailyRollingFileAppender which has no size limitation - it just increases is size until midnight and then a new log file is created. To limit the size, you could use the RollingFileAppender, it has a MaxFileSize parameter.

Here is an example:

<appender name="FILE" class="org.jboss.logging.appender.RollingFileAppender">
  |   <errorHandler class="org.jboss.logging.util.OnlyOnceErrorHandler"/>
  |   <param name="File" value="${jboss.server.log.dir}/server.log"/>
  |   <param name="Append" value="true"/>
  |   <param name="MaxFileSize" value="500KB"/>
  |   <param name="MaxBackupIndex" value="20"/>
  |   <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
  |     <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %-5p [%c] %m%n"/>
  |   </layout>
  | </appender>
