Yes, Tim, that's pretty accurate.

That's a good suggestion, I'll do so.  I've been a bit concerned about running a second Tomcat
instance on this 
production server since I've been having so much trouble with it, but if a second instance
is a problem, I'll just turn 
it off.  It's probably better to leave the production instance alone, actually.  I have changed
JVM versions, Tomcat 
versions, etc. over the course of this issue, by the way.
