It works!  I set environment variable JAVA_OPTS and defined a new variable
and update the <Host> element with the workDir parameter referring to the
new variable.

Speaking of bugs about 5.5.12, I think I just ran into one.  The first app
server uses my newly defined work directory and I can see the size of this
new work directory increase as JSP pages are visited and compiled.  However,
the second appserver which uses exactly the same NFS mounted files and with
a different work directory, will create the new work directory but still use
the old default "work" directory for actual JSP compilations.  We have other
webapps that use 5.5.12 and they exhibit the same problem.  I'm baffled.

So I changed to Tomcat 5.5.27 and the problem disappears.  Need to go
through a round of regression testing for 5.5.27 but will switch to it in
production the earliest I can.
