Hi Bill,

thanks for answering. Pretty simple indeed. I have no complaints over 
the interpretation of the servlet spec.

I do feel that it is inefficient that I should have to find out about 
this change in this way - i.e. looking at my app not working as I expect 
it to (as it did in the past), thinking I've configured it wrong, 
checking all my configuration, mailing the user list, entering an issue 
into bugzilla etc.

This issue in the servlet spec does not stand out as something new, 
there are no notes on this on the tomcat website, there is nothing in 
the Release Notes.

I know what you're going to say: this is open-source, we all do what we 
can, perhaps I should monitor the tomcat dev list and write a recap 
every month for the user list etc. - touchee I guess.

Thanks anyway,
