What you stated in comment #2 is correct.  Perhaps you're confusing context
path (that which appears in a URL, using a slash as a separator) with file
system path (which uses # as separator).  Note that expansion of a .war into a
directory is done solely for the convenience of Tomcat; nothing in the servlet
spec requires such action, so there should not be any expectations about the
naming conventions used in such an expansion.
