solved this problem, I found a bug in the catalina ClusterManager and submitted a patch.
Currently, clustering will not work if the war being deployed is configured to use the root ( '/' ) context.
I put your patch in HEAD - please test...
the fix worked for me. thanks for the help!
This seems to work in 3.0.x as well. I applied the patch manually locally and is seems ok. Will it wind up in that branch ultimately?
