Does it work to simply make your application's <form-login-page> point
to /Shibboleth.sso/Login? If you do that, what happens?

I think some versions of Tomcat do a server-side forward when the login
form is required, while other versions will do a redirect. If you can
get Tomcat to do a redirect, this ought to work. If it's attempting to
do a server-side forward, you may have to take other steps.
