This is 5.5.7, with the 1.4 compatibility package on MacOS.  I've 
experienced similar issues before with different tomcat versions, 
though I had forgotten that in this case..

Note I do NOT unpack the app from a war, just copy the full hierarchy 
straight under webapps.  Also, the WEB-INF/classes/ 
file was a symblic link.  Maybe one of these makes a difference?
