Dear Markus,

Sorry to reply again.

I now see what you mean. There is an rm when you "stop" tomcat, and
another in the "start"; so maybe there are two in restart. No matter:
I watch (with inotify), keep watch and keep watching, and put in a
symlink to /etc soon as I can, anytime and every time I can. So I will
create a symlink after the rm during stop, a wasted thing, present
between your stop and start; then during start you rm, I create the
symlink, you do the useless "mkdir -p" and you chown; I win.

For your test, you took the rm out of your script: you should see /etc
being chowned to tomcat8. Please confirm.

Cheers, Paul
