You might want to report this as bug. I'm not sure,
I haven't really used Tomcat with 3.0
I think the * should be a ^. It looks like a codepage
(character set translation) problem. Which codepage are
you using? Does it work with Jetty?
Yes it works with Jetty!
But there I got other errors later on. Null pointer exception that I did not receive in 3.0 alpha.
