Just for grins, I put a trivial static context (nothing more than a directory containing a simple "index.html" file) into /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps. Tomcat 8.5 found it. So it's only the root context that's somehow getting redirected.

But on the other hand, if I rename var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/ROOT to "ROOTx," Tomcat 8.5 STILL finds that one (or at least its index.html).

Curiouser and curiouser.

If I remember right, Linux file systems can have not only symbolic links to files, but also multiple hard links to the same file. Is there an easy way to look for something like that?
