If you run with <Host autoDeploy="true"/> then ~every 10 seconds
Tomcat checks whether the war file is newer than the directory that
was created when extracting the war file.  If it is then a
redeployment happens.  You should be able to see deployment /
undeployment messages in the logs.

Maybe the check was performed during the DST change and the times for
one web application were inconsistent. Do you need autoDeploy="true"
if you manually modify the deployed applications?
