I suspect I know what is happening.

Waffle provides it's own implementation of Tomcat's Authenticator
interface and does this by extending Tomcat's AuthenticatorBase.
Therefore, the Authenticator Interface and the AuthenticatorBase class
have to be visible to the class loader loading Waffle.

If you place Waffle in the endorsed dir then it can't see the
AuthenticatorBase (look at the class loader docs for Tomcat). The short
version is Waffle has to be placed in Tomcat's lib directory.
