While all the points above have been addressed, there is a big issue:
filters just don't seem to "error away" when badly configured. See the
associated bugzilla entry at even with an
existing filter, which is known to work, the context is reloaded
anyway... In its previous state or so it seems, according to some "out
of the head" tests of mines.

In particular, nothing out of my log.error()s appear in any log file
with a default Tomcat tarball generated by "ant release"! Next step is
trying and applying the patch over the "real" Tomcat 7.x branch and
see what turns out...
