I had the same problem.
Imho would be very appreciated if this is written in the site pages.
In the documentation is stated that security seems to work ok, but
it is wrong. This disorients users.
Anyway in the mailing list archive I found the following...
now security works for me.

/***********************************************************/
This cc'd to tomcat-users because a number of users had reported these bugs.

Below are patches for a couple of bugs in 3.1 final which had not been fixed 
in CVS as of yesterday. The bugs are described in the email  included below.

Apologies if this is going over old ground. I was told that this had been 
discussed before (soon after 3.1 release) and it was decided not to fix them 
because of the move to a new security architecture (I understand from the 
CVS logs that SimpleMapper is to be deleted). However, I couldn't find this 
discussion in the mailing list archives (neither users nor dev).
