I'd have to dig through the documentation (which you can also do).  But I am pretty sure 
that up to some version, Tomcat by default first deleted the *content* of whatever was 
pointed to by the symbolic link (in this case, the log directory), then the symbolic link

As I recall, this behaviour was changed at some point, but maybe only when some parameter

is specified.
The "Deployment" section of the Tomcat on-line documentation would be the place to start.

Anyway, the way (or a way) to go to do this properly has been indicated in a previous 
message by Chuck (the one where he rectified my own sloppy scenario).
