Yes, my bad. conf/Catalina/localhost exists but is empty.

So, looking at this further, this might be an IntelliJ IDEA bug. I'm deploying the application
using the Tomcat support in IDEA. IDEA creates a directory C:\Users\Nicholas\.IntelliJIdea12\system\tomcat\Unnamed_Customer-Support-v15\conf\Catalina\localhost
and that directory contains support.xml with my context.xml contents. I'm betting it's not
hooking that up properly. I'll research that route instead.

Sorry if I've wasted anyone's time looking into this.
