Excellent point (just kidding) but actually, thanks for pointing the
case-problem-fix out.

This also happens on Mac OS X (which has a case-respecting, case-insensitive
filesystem that annoys me frequently when working in the Unix side).  Apple
distributes an Apache module which fixes the associated security problems
for httpd, but I didn't even think to check this under Tomcat.  Good thing I
only deploy on Linux.  ;)

So, Mac OS X users beware.

I wonder how receptive the Tomcat committers would be to patches /
automatically enabled workarounds for resolving / protecting against this
issue.

cheers
