Tomcat's ClassLoader Howto

  http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/class-loader-howto.html

Mentions `shared/lib' and `shared/classes' as being dereferenced from 
CATALINA_HOME.  This isn't quite accurate -- they're really dereferenced from 
CATALINA_BASE.  Of course, that doesn't matter when CATALINA_HOME == 
CATALINA_BASE, but if different CATALINA_BASE directories are used, then the 
distinction becomes important.

In addition:

  http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/RUNNING.txt

Omits `shared' when listing directories that are dereferenced with respect to 
CATALINA_BASE.  (lines 112 - 140 or so).

(For verification, I looked through the main() method of 
catalina/src/share/org/apache/catalina/startup/Bootstrap.java from the tomcat 
source distribution; which sets up the different class loaders).
