Solving this problem correctly is a bigger issue than just servlets, also --
the same sorts of things happen when you talk about authenticating users and
roles in EJBs.  Therefore, it's probably going to be the next major spec cycle
before we see portability on the container-managed security stuff :-(

The most likely cause of this is that you didn't do a "./ clean"
followed by a complete "./build" after you updated the sources.

The location of the servlet.jar file has moved (to $CATALINA_HOME/bin), and if
it is still present in $CATALINA_HOME/lib as well you will get
ClassCastExceptions all over the place.
