If both Tomcat instances use the same webapps directory, each 
Tomcat instance will try to load all of the webapps within the webapps
directory, regardless of whether a particular webapp is identified in the 
server.xml file.
I believe that if you don't want to automatically pick up everything in the 
webapps directory, you will need to uncomment the following line in your
server.xml file:
<ContextInterceptor className="org.apache.tomcat.context.AutoSetup" />
