How did you do this?

Are you entering that URL directly (by typing it into your browser), or
are you submitting your login.jsp to j_security_check? When the redirect
does not happen, does the URL in your browser show j_security_check, or
some other URL (presumably the URL you tried to access before being
challenged for your username and password).

I would highly recommend upgrading to the latest 5.5.x version of
Tomcat: lots and lots and lots of stuff has been fixed. Perhaps this is
one of them. You could always check the changelog:
