Or ... it could just be that this note is incorrect.  I deployed a war 
using the command line without specifying the target and the results 
were the same as with the admin console ... the war was only deployed to 
the <geronimo-home>/repository.

I'd still recommend using the command line and specify the appropriate 
target to resolve your issue.
