When you say this, are you saying that tomcat automatically copies from 
the the META-INF/context.xml file in the .war file to that location

(in my case that would 
be /var/lib/tomcat5.5/conf/Catalina/appserv.home/usermgr.xml because my 
host is appserv.home)


I only have an EMPTY localhost directory in 
the /var/lib/tomcat5.5/conf/Catalina directory and
no appserv.home directory at all.
