Nope, it's only there.  I even unzipped every single jar in the  
webapp's WEB-INF folder to see if any of them had HttpServlet.class  
in them, and they didn't...

Also, it wouldn't explain why my other webapp is unable to see the  
MySQL driver jar in its own WEB-INF/lib folder...

Also, another interesting update: I downloaded Eclipse and the Sysdeo  
Tomcat plugin, to see if I could debug the problem, and starting  
Tomcat from within Eclipse doesn't seem to trigger the problem--at  
least not yet.
