Hi Andreas,
since you are in the experimental stage, perhaps you should check out 
tomcat 5 before you start creating your own security, because in v5 the 
container-managed security changes somewhat. It may be that this problem 
is tackled differently in the new version.

tomcat 5 is not out of beta yet, but I don't think that is far away.
