Tomcat 7 does not copy context.xml into its conf folder by default. I
do not remember exactly, but I suppose that it now reads it from the
war file directly. I wonder if such errors can be handled more

How is your <Host> defined in your server.xml ?  What is the value of
unpackWARs attribute and other attributes of <Host>?

What is your OS? How big is your war file?

In the script you can split it into two steps:
 1) copy it to "webapps/"
 2) rename it into "your.war"

Renaming is fast so you are less likely to end up with a partial file.
