Well, OK. That's where I will go next.

Did you re/write the <catalina-install> and <catalina-deploy> task? 
What's in a config file anyway?

Would you mind sending me a copy of your config file? I have no idea how 
one looks. Also, I'd appreciate, if you could send me your web.xml 
deployment descriptor file... These are two issues for me I couldn't 
find much info about.

Is there anything you can add to the startup-local stuff?
