Subject RE: "Unsafe path..." - What is Tomcat trying to tell me?

Would this have anything to do with the special checking that 
Tomcat does to make sure a request URL is not requesting files 
within the WEB-INF directory which gets special treatment by
Tomcat.  I see this in the ISAPI filter logs where it checks
to see that a request URL is not attempting to access WEB-INF
before forwarding the request to Tomcat.

This is just a hunch.

Subject: "Unsafe path..." - What is Tomcat trying to tell me?

I am trying to run Cocoon 1.8.2 with Tomcat 3.2.1 on Win95.  During
Cocoon initialization a null pointer exception is thrown and Tomcat
issues the following message:

2001-05-03 03:52:02 - Ctx( /cocoon ): Unsafe path
C:\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.1\webapps\cocoon \Web-inf\

It appears that Tomcat will not let Cocoon get at its' properties file.
I tried mucking around with the Tomcat policy file but nothing I tried
made any difference.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
