Log entries on stdout and not in the log file

for some odd reason I am not getting any logs written out with 0.9 (if I
start ES with the init.d script it dumps all of the entries to stdout) ..
The final ES command is as follows :

java -Xms12g -Xmx12g -Xss256k -Djava.awt.headless=true -XX:+UseParNewGC
-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:CMSInitiatingOccupancyFraction=75
-XX:+UseCMSInitiatingOccupancyOnly -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError
-Delasticsearch -Des.pidfile=/var/run/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.pid
-Des.path.home=/usr/share/elasticsearch -cp
-Des.path.logs=/var/log/elasticsearch -Des.path.data=/var/lib/elasticsearch

/usr/share/elasticsearch/config/logging.yml (I tried it both using the
variables and hardcoding the path -
the uncommented line should be result when those var are evaluated..):

rootLogger: INFO,file

log action execution errors for easier debugging

action: DEBUG

reduce the logging for aws, too much is logged under the default INFO

com.amazonaws: WARN


#gateway: DEBUG
#index.gateway: DEBUG

peer shard recovery

#index.shard.recovery: DEBUG


#discovery: TRACE

type: file
#file: ${path.logs}/${cluster.name}.log
file: /var/log/elasticsearch/cmdb-test.log
type: pattern
conversionPattern: "[%d{ISO8601}][%-5p][%-25c] %m%n"

... the log directory is owned by ES process user so def. not a perms
issue .. What am I doing wrong ? Thanks for any help in advance.
