Thanks..! Good to see that others (log4j!!) have this problem!
  However, I have been thinking along these lines (the second idea
presented) already, but it then again boils down to that you really cannot
assume anything about what environment you're within. See, typically in
the development environements we use, the dirname of the webapp have
nothing in common with the "mount name" (you specify that in the tomcat
server config file, or these other "xml-snippets" outside of the file) -
thus I'm back to the starting point: no knowledge!

If only the SerlvetContext object would be so nice as to have a simple
method getContextPath(), we'd all be happy!
