I don't have Konstantin's message on this machine so I can't reply to 
it, but he got me pointed in the correct direction to get this fixed.

The issues was with my set up of the CATALINA_BASE directories.  All the 
install locations were good, but when I set up catalina.base, I also 
happened to copy the /lib directory, which has all the tomcat jars in it 
(catalina.jar, etc), so it was picking the TC7 versions of them instead 
of the ones in the actual install location.  Once I got rid of the extra 
files, everything runs as it should.
