I'll have to remember that one.  Thanks!

In that case, you have to either ensure that your webapp.s do not
contain META-INF/context.xml or that the Host has deployXML='false'.
Otherwise the webapp itself will supply a Context.

Tomcat will generate a Context on its own in some circumstances which
I've not yet completely worked out from the documentation.  How did
you disable this?

Typically when a software vendor says that a product is "intuitive" he
means the exact opposite.
