Actually I just did get access to a third server and did a complete 
fresh install of java & tomcat and my app.war, and the ghost German 
strings came up.

So the German strings must be in the war file. But there is only the one file there in the war file! I just checked.

Again, deleting or adding the German locale to the browser settings 
makes the strings change, so it is definitely the resource bundles.
