Subject RE: Manual servlet deployment problems on 4.1.18

Tomcat doesn't follow symbolic links by default.  You have to enable this in
server.xml for each Context where you want to use symbolic links.  I'm not
saying 100% that that was the problem, just that symlink support is not
available out of the box with recent versions of Tomcat.
