I think Viet is implying that there is a general issue with the way  
we're setting up the root context during an ear deployment. Sitemesh  
highlights the issue, but the general problem exists even without  
Sitemesh. I think he's probably correct. This will take a bit more  
investigation to get to the bottom of the problem.
