My advice would be to make sure that only one of those directories exists
in one of those locations, and remove any symlinks or extra directories
that may add confusion.  If you're going to use /etc/guacamole, use it and
remove the .guacamole directory from the Tomcat user's folder.  If you're
going to use the .guacamole directory from the Tomcat user's folder, remove
/etc/guacamole.  Things should work with symlinks in place, but it will
only serve to add confusion to the configuration.
