The behaviour of tomcat changed.
The "invoker" Servlet Mapper is turned of by default.
You have to turn it on your webapp web.xml or in the global web.xml.

This info is well hidden at the very end of the RELEASE_NOTES, the first place

Looking in the archive of the mailing list would also help as this question 
gets posted and answered every day.
