I am closing this as INVALID as the Service Provider mechanism for
DriverManager is - as I suspected - broken for servlet container environments.
Given that it was a lottery if this ever worked before, that it now
consistently doesn't work isn't really a regression.

What I have done is updated the documentation to try and explain what is going
on and how to work-around it. Basically, just assume the service provider
mechanism isn't there and manually register (and deregister) the Driver.

The change for the updated docs is here:
