Why not? Anything you need to do should probably be specified in a
configuration file that can be loaded without using $HOME. Your
application seems fragile.

Tomcat itself does not change any environment variables other than:

PRGDIR        (for internal use)
CLASSPATH     (removes existing value before calling setenv.sh)
CATALINA_HOME (only if unset)
CATALINA_BASE (only if unset)
QIBM_MULTI_THREADED (on OS/400)
JDK_JAVA_OPTIONS (appends)

Any other changes to environment variables are being done by some
other component outside of Tomcat. Note that this could include
something your package-manager (Debian) has done.
