Wow, I had a client with the exact same problem and -- oh, wait, it
wasn't Tomcat, it was OC4J  :-)

And IIRC those files are artifacts that appear for reasons having
nothing to do with undeployment; it's only that undeployment fails
and makes those artifacts' presence obvious.

The fix is *not running an app server off an NFS partition*.  Really.
