If you take a look at the web.xml of the default ROOT webapp that is 
shipped with Tomcat, you'll see that /index.jsp is mapped to the 
pre-compiled servlet that's generated from ROOT/index.jsp, not to the 
JSP servlet that would compile it on access.
Therefore, what you observed is exactly what is to be expected and 
doesn't help with tracking down the problem you have.

But that's just a side note.
To really get help with solving the problem, you should continue to 
answer Mark's questions and follow his advice.
