This patch isn't portable to 4.1.x, because the issue there isn't the 
same (it would is Jasper from 4.1.x used commons-logging, but thankfully 
it does not, so the headache level is lower).

I'm suspecting what causes bug 22701 in TC 4.1.x is that the context 
classloader isn't properly reset in the StandardHostValve (I did that on 
purpose originally, thinking it was useless; maybe not ;-) ).
