Seems a lot of people are having problems with the 'admin' context not
having a username/password obviously available to be changed....including
me.  (tomcat 3.2beta8, apache 1.3.14, mod_jk, )

I have the following conf/tomcat-users.xml:
------------------------------------------------
<tomcat-users>
  <user name="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat" />
  <user name="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1" />
  <user name="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1" />
  <user name="admin" password="admin" roles="admin" />     # <-- NOTE ,I
added this line.
</tomcat-users>
------------------------------------------------

and I now get the following error when trying to access the 'view ..' 'add
..' and 'remove ..'  context buttons when browsing to 

http://localhost/admin

(the http://localhost/examples context works fine though)

What's it mean? (it means nothing to me!)
