Hmm. Odd. Very odd. I am using 5.5.x and other weird things are
happening that I need to fix. In the mean-time, can you try plan B
below? Make sure that you use the jars in your Tomcat installation to
compile against.

My authenticator is being called but the process is failing due to a
struts error I don't yet understand. Anyway, can you try the following?

Copy org.apache.catalina.authenticator.FormAuthenticator, add a
System.out somewhere and place the compiled class in
server/classes/org/apache/catalina/authenticator/FormAuthenticator.class should be as per a clean installation

This should over-ride the class in the jar and call your code.

Best of luck.
