  I've verified this.

The class in question is being automatically generated by Tomcat when it 
tries to compile a JSP.  AFAIK, there's nothing that I need to do w/respect 
to creating packages for JSPs and none of my JSPs are precompiled.

When I deploy the exact same webapp to WinXP w/Tomcat v4.1.30 & JDK v1.4.2 
and NetWare v6.5 w/Tomcat v4.1.28 & JDK v1.4.2, the WAR file is unpacked OK 
at Tomcat startup and all of the JSPs are compiled successfully when the 
webapp is accessed for the first time.  However, when I deploy the WAR file 
to OpenVMS Alpha v7.3-1 w/Tomcat v4.1.24 & JDK v1.4.2, the "login.jsp" file 
fails to be compiled into a Java class.  I can see that "" 
gets created, but there's no corresponding "login_jsp.class" file and this 
makes sense based on the error messages I'm seeing.  The initial page to be 
accessed in the webapp is the welcome page, which is named "index.jsp" and 
it is located in the webapp's "root" folder.  I can see that "index.jsp" was 
  used to generate "" and that was, in turn, compiled into 
"index_jsp.class" w/o any problems.

I'm still at a loss to explain why this happens on just this one Tomcat
