I just double checked everything on my system.  I did a clean 
installation of Tomcat 4.1.24-LE and deployed my applications and still 
see the same results: the app ends up unpacked in the 
TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/[webapp name] folder.  NOTE: the webapp war file 
itself does *not* end up in the webapps folder, but I end up with the 
named folder beneath it containing the unpacked files.  I do *not* get 
the [webapp name] folder underneath work/Standalone/localhost, though 
the webapp war does get placed inside work/Standalone/localhost/manager/lib.

The docBase parameter in the server.xml refers to the 
TOMCAT_HOME\webapps\[webapp name] location.  I'm guessing that when you 
tested, the docBase parameter pointed to the Standalone/localhost location?

I'm stumped.

FWIW, here's the ant task that I use (in case this wasn't clear before 
-- I only use ant tasks to invoke the manager, never the manager webapp 

   <target name="deploy-service">
     <taskdef name="deploy"

     <deploy url="${catalina.webapps.url}/manager"

the properties are pretty self-explanatory:
catalina.webapps.url = http://localhost:8081
catalina.manager.user/pwd are correct. is the name of my webapp ("net").
deploy.war is the name of the war to deploy ("/src/net/build/lib/net.war").

The build file (and all properties) worked fine before this upgrade, so 
I'm truly at a loss.
