And, in this case, you would be wrong.  Tomcat-user has many more people
with experiance in obscure configurations than tomcat-dev has.  If you are
not getting a SecurityException, then I personally have no clue as to what
is wrong.

At the very least, Michael is right:  You need to specify which version of
Tomcat you are using, which JVM version you are using, and which O/S you are
using.  Without these, I'm probably the very last person to every respond to
this :).
