OK. I should have booted into Windows and checked this out. So while not along the lines of
current Tomcat good practices, the above will actually work?

It just looks a bit unpleasant.

Again, I should have booted into Windows and played a bit. Thanks for the clarification.

So if the above virtual host is legal (if not "clean"), and the rest of his server.xml file
looks OK, what in the world is going on?
