If it is really like above, then why are you using an Apache httpd front-end at all?
Would it not be easier (+ simpler, + more efficient) to just get Tomcat to listen on port

80 and whatever IP address Apache httpd is listening to right now ?

(To get exactly the same behaviour as above, you would also have to make "app1" be the 
Tomcat ROOT application.)

Note: I also use a lot of setups with Apache httpd as front-end, and Tomcat as a back-end,

and sometimes this is very practical.  At least, when the Apache httpd front-end is 
actually "doing something" other than forwarding the requests to Tomcat.
But here, it does not seem to be doing anything at all.
