I had already tried including a "JkEnvVar" as you suggested in my httpd.conf, in order to
try to hard-code getting SOMETHING  to show up, but no joy :(...

I've also tried a bunch of other variants:



JkEnvVar remote_user "foobar"


JkEnvVar AJP_REMOTE_USER "foobar"

Nothing works :(...

This is really getting discouraging :(.  It almost seems to me like that 'tomcatAuthentication'
functionality doesn't even exist at all.

I've searched the jk.log for multiple things, "attr", "remo", etc., and find nothing relevant/significant
at all in there...
