------- Additional Comments From remm@apache.org  2005-02-08 22:39 -------
The behavior is not specified anywhere, but the idea is that in the case of a
physical folder or the root of a context, the trailing '/' is not relevant.
Since this causes recurrent path resolution issues (which made servlets like our
default servlet needlessly more complex), we always present the servlet with a
training '/' in all cases. It is also the most efficient, so that's the the
implementation which is currently used.

I regret it would prevent you from using Tomcat, but there's nothing that I will
change here.
