A change of this magnitude doesn't happen accidentally ;)

Thanks for posting the temporary workaround solution.  I'm sure Sysdeo
will update their plugin, they've done such a great job with it ;)

Good question.  It's up to the application server's developers to test
the embedded tomcat before they ship their server ;)  If, for example,
you're using JBoss 3.x with tomcat 4.1.27 and decide to update to tomcat
4.1.29 without changing the rest of JBoss, you leave it up to yourself
to test the combined server and make it work ;)
