Just a bug. Please file it in Bugzilla.

There is no "Undeploy" button in this case, so maybe the expire one
followed the suit, or maybe just oversight.

Deploying an app by adding it to server.xml is a rare and
non-recommended use case. Why you cannot put them into
respectively ?

The command is still there, if you know what URL to invoke. Though you
might want to silence the CsrfPreventionFilter -- see its init-param
named "entryPoints".

Maybe you want to change the value for <session-timeout> in your
web-app's web.xml (or the default one in conf/web.xml)?
