I'm trying to get alfresco 2 running on Tomcat5.5 on Debian Etch with Sun Java 5. I put the war file in /var/lib/tomcat5.5/webapps, copied the endorsed jars to /usr/share/tomcat5.5/common/endorsed, copied the three core config files to /var/lib/tomcat5.5/shared/classes/afresco, set dir.root to /srv/alfresco and set log4j.appender.File.File=/var/log/tomcat5.5/alfresco.log in /var/lib/tomcat5.5/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties

The tomcat55 user owns all of those files and /srv/alfresco. However, on startup I get
SEVERE: Error deploying web application archive alfresco.war
<snip>
Caused by: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission /var/log/tomcat5.5/alfresco.log write)
despite the fact that /var/log/tomcat5.5/alfresco.log exists and is owned by tomcat55. What's going on here?
