No, you're talking about an unrelated issue.  My problem is that 
ResourceLinks (to a globally declared resource) declared in a 
DefaultContext element do not propagate to any automatically deployed 
contexts.  This occurs no matter where the driver jar is located.

Apart from forcing you to explicity configure each context, it also makes 
it much harder to use the ant based deployment tasks - in fact I've given up.

I downloaded 5.0.13 as comitters on the list have been describing it as 
stable - but the problem still exists.
