Look at your <Host> tag. It's probably got an appBase="webapps"
attribute, so you are trying to configure
/Users/novotny/Jakarta/tomcat-5.5.12/webapps/gridsphere to be served as
/grindsphere and /portal which is not supported.

Either rename the grindsphere directory to portal and skip the <Context>
attribute or locate it somewhere else and specify the path in Context.

BTW: The Logger spec you gave will not work - logging has changed with
TC 5.5.



PS: Question to the developers: I'd like to have a <Host> without
appBase (only 1 app and outside) - is this supported?
