RTFM. Especially the section in
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html
that states:
"The value of this field [path] must not be set except when statically defining
a Context in server.xml, as it will be infered from the filenames used for
either the .xml context file or the docBase."

No, your statement is plain wrong. If you want to set the context path to
"/some/path", name the XML file containing the Context definition "some#path.xml".

BTW: Just doing a quick glance over Tomcat's documention, I didn't find the
latter mentioned. So it might be a good idea to add this to
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html
or
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/host.html#Automatic%20Application%20Deployment
