	When in doubt, look for logs and be prepared for the horror that
	is Java tracebacks, where you get 400 lines of "at somewhere..." with
	precious little meaning. 

	Unfortunately, since I have no intention of going anywhere near tomcat
	except under duress, I can't tell you where the logfiles are.

	For what it is worth, roller 4 + glassfish 2 ur 1 was so easy to get
	running that I am suspicious. It was something like

	unpack dir, create,
	asadmin start-domain
	asadmin start-database
	asadmin deploydir blah, go to localhost:8080
	stare in abject fear as it works.

	Of course, mystically, comment posting doesnt work and the aforementioned
	logfile hell has NOTHING what so ever. I guess that is Java revenge.
