I just got bitten by this as well.

I wondered why Tomcat (even after restarting the entire server!!!) didn't pick
up changes I had made to my /webappname/META-INF/context.xml file, until I
discovered via grep -r the cached version of that file in
conf/Catalina/localhost/webappname.xml.  I deleted webappname.xml in an attempt
to force Tomcat to pick up the updated version of context.xml.

In retaliation, Tomcat deletes my web.xml file. Fortunately, we were able to
restore from CVS.

Filing this as INVALID shows a disturbing attitude on the part of the Tomcat
developers. Please understand that we don't have the time to analyze the Tomcat
code base for whatever behavior you've programmed into it. We rely on the
documentation, and we rely on the assumption that Tomcat shows sensible
behavior if in doubt.
