Yeap, that's the problem, we cannot reproduce the issue: it works fine 
in Linux and Windows, also in two OSX I have access. But for whatever 
reason we got two different users with the same issue in OSX. It failes 
both in a regular tomcat and the embedded one provided by the maven plugin.

We have integration tests over Jetty, and on those conflicting 
environments the test successfully passes.

So definetely something is different there... but hard to find.

In our case we have a filter for serving static content from modules 
(jars). Marmotta has a custom modules' architecture.

I have to ask.

We are using 3.0. metadata-complete is not explicitly set there. Shoild 
it help?
