I doubt this has anything to do with catalina.policy. This seems to be an 
error thrown by the XML parser - but catalina.polica is plain-text file.
Check the XML config files and context descriptors. Maybe there's something 
wrong with them - for example byte order marks at the beginning of the file 
(i. e. before the "<?xml version..." line).

Can't help you with that. Your system seems to behave a bit - hm - strange. I 
doubt that tomcat is removing entries from catalina.policy.
