 From an outsider point of view, that sounds logical.
Each new "mapping" probably overwrites the previous one.
Otherwise Tomcat would have to keep a list, and each time there is an access, go through 
all these directories in sequence (which one?) to check if something there matches what 
the request URL is looking for.  That sounds rather inefficient.

It does look like you could solve your problem by mapping to a slightly different 
webAppMount each time though.

Like :

ext-dir1 -> /web-inf/lib/A/
ext-dir2 -> /web-inf/lib/B/

Is that not applicable ?
