Tomcat keeps it's own copies in $TOMCAT_HOME/work/ of the .java
and .class files generated from the JSPs (JSPs are really converted
to servlets at runtime).

However if you update the JSP Tomcat is *supposed* to recompile the JSP
next time you hit it.. I believe it does this by checking the mtime
of the file, did you have the date set incorrectly at any point? Could
the initial modification time of the JSP have been in the future?
