Remy, you're basically right about the configuration that I was aiming for.  I'm
afraid I don't have a great understanding of the ways in which contexts and
hosts are best configured so most likely I was going about it all the wrong way.

What I was trying to do was to configure contexts outside of server.xml (with
XML files in $CATALINA_HOME/conf/[engine_name]/[host_name]).  The directory
structure on my server doesn't have all the tomcat applications arranged inside
one directory: for this reason all my contexts are defined with an
absolute-pathname docBase, so essentially I didn't want appBase to be used at
all.  But appBase is a required attribute of Host, so I figured that setting it
the same as the docBase of the root context made sense.

So I wanted auto-deployment at startup time to find the context xml files in
$CATALINA_HOME/conf/[engine_name]/[host_name], but *not* to take subdirectories
of appBase as applications.  This worked OK in Tomcat 5, because WEB-INF/web.xml
was actually required for Tomcat 5 to consider a subdirectory of appBase to be
an application.  But, as Mark explained, in Tomcat 6, any directory within
appBase gets defined as an application, meaning that any subdirectory would get
taken as an application.

I guess this might be one of the use-cases that you mention where contexts need
to be defined in server.xml.  Or more likely I'm just a bit confused :s

Anyway, I don't want you to think that I'm treating this bug as a personal
tomcat-configuration tutorial, so please don't feel obliged to correct me!
