Initial investigation of the problem that Jon Stevens reported with Scarab under
Tomcat 4.0 is that it works under JDK 1.2.2 but fails under JDK 1.3.0 -- there
is clearly something in the platform that has changed, but which Tomcat 4.0 is
not dealing with.  I will be addressing that further today.  (I just downloaded
the Linux 1.3 release to test with).

It would be helpful if people experiencing this problem (in Tomcat 4.0) could
report whether they can successfully run the app under 1.2.2 or not.
