Porting web application from Apache1.3/Tomcat3.3.
Before stumbling on this partial fix all my JSPs and servlets returned getRemoteUser null.
This fix works for JSPs but doesn't help much for servlets. 


Does anyone have any idea why a JSP referenced by name in a url would return getRemoteUser
= null and the same JSP referenced through DirectoryIndex in Apache2 would return getRemoteUser
= expected user name.

http://serverAddr/DisplayUser.jsp returns null

In Apache conf
DirectoryIndex DisplayUser.jsp

http://serverAddr/ returns DisplayUser.jsp with user name
