work directory not deleted when Context is removed from Tomcat

           Summary: work directory not deleted when Context is removed from
                    Tomcat
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0.2 Final
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: anewberger@plumbdesign.com


When removing a Context through the manager or programmatically through the 
Deployer interface on a Host, the work directory(ies) corresponding to that 
application are not deleted.  The reason I care about this: bizarre behavior 
occurs when you remove a context and then add a context with the same 
contextPath within a running Tomcat instance.  For instance, certain pages 
remain as if they were the original pre-removal context, tag library 
declarations begin to cause exceptions, etc.  These issues cease if you stop 
and restart the server, indicating to me that Tomcat does something on startup 
to clear stuff out or reinitialize/create some internal data structures such 
that the context then works.  These things do not happen when removing a 
Context programmatically, but they should.  Clearing the work directory would 
hopefully resolve these issues.
