Thats the problem of the MemoryDescriptorsStore, it holds the information
in the memory, and it's gone then you shutdown tomcat.

So you uncomment the XMLDescriptorStore and change the scope, which I
currently use.

And then you change the parameter
<parameter name="version">false</parameter>
to true, you should have versioned documents.

I don't have any experiences with XMLMind etc, but it works with MS
Explorer and Cadaver.
