Subject Tomcat Manager weirdness on a Google Compute instance

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I just experienced something very odd.

It seems that this morning, when I tried to upload a WAR file to the 
prototype instance for one of my instance groups, I kept repeatedly 
hitting a brick wall: as soon as the upload passed the 2% mark, it would 
abort, and I'd get a "Connection reset" error page.

After some troubleshooting, following the Sherlock Holmes axiom (once 
you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however unlikely, must 
be true), I discovered that somehow, the "max-file-size" and 
"max-request-size" in manager/WEB-INF/web.xml had reverted from our 
standard setting of 500M, to the factory setting of 50M.

And I found that the same had happened with the prototype instance for 
another instance group.

Can anybody shed any light on this? Some sort of automatic update?
