Your config is clearly using FORM and not BASIC. I've never seen Tomcat
act funny like this all by itself, but I have heard folks who use
Eclipse say they sometimes experience strangeness due to Eclipse
re-writing configurations for them during development and testing. Try
doing a clean re-deployment of everything and see if that helps. Sorry,
I don't know a lot about Eclipse webapp development, so I can't help
with the specifics.

Hope that helps,
