Yes, we do run an ANT script to build the war. The ANT script uses the file
that has couple of file system references. The build.xml, however does NOT have any such EXPLICIT
references. So, when I build the war it takes the jars and sources from the provided locations
and build at the provided target location. Now, I will re-iterate - 
1. I tried building the war in Windows and worked fine. I transferred the war to UNIX, it
mis-behaves as described earlier.
2. I tried building the war in UNIX, it mis-behaves as described earlier. I transferred the
war to Windows and it worked fine.

The config files are located in a directory structure, that directory location is provided
in the catalina.bat startup script. If they are not provided correctly, it will throw errors
while starting up the app. 

Windows and UNIX startup logs are attached herewith. I do not see any much difference in between
the logs except for the file systems.

Another additional comment - Its not only the back button that tends to display the Search
Result, a refresh of the page also displays the page properly. So, in short, click on search,
404-Page Not Found turns up. Refresh it, or Back Button of browser, Search result turns up.
This is the mis-behaviour in UNIX I have been mentioning.
