Avoid setting CLASSPATH globally. It's not necessary either; tools.jar will
be added to the classpath used when tomcat is started, anyway.

Also avoid directory names with spaces in them. You never know when that is
going to cause trouble. Whoever came up with the idea that such a central
catalog in windows should have a space in it, and even that the name should
vary depending on your preferred language did us all a misfavour. Hopefully not
intended ;)
