This bug was fixed in the package tomcat6 - 6.0.16-1ubuntu1

tomcat6 (6.0.16-1ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low

  * Adding full Tomcat 6 server stack support (LP: #256052)
    - tomcat6 handles the system instance (/var/lib/tomcat6)
    - tomcat6-user allows users to create their own private instances
    - tomcat6-common installs common files in /usr/share/tomcat6
    - libtomcat6-java installs Tomcat 6 java libs in /usr/share/java
    - tomcat6-docs installs the documentation webapp
    - tomcat6-examples installs the examples webapp
    - tomcat6-admin installs the manager and host-manager webapps
  * Other key differences with the tomcat5.5 packages:
    - default-jdk build support
    - OpenJDK-6 JRE runtime support
    - tomcat6 installs a minimal ROOT webapp
    - new webapp locations follow Debian webapp policy
    - webapps restart tomcat6 in postrm rather than in prerm
    - added a doc-base entry
    - use standard upstream server.xml
    - initscript: try to check if Tomcat is really running before returning OK
    - removed transitional configuration migration code
    - autogenerate policy in /var/cache/tomcat6 rather than /etc/tomcat6
    - is customized to remove -webapps-related lines
    - initscript: implement TearDown spec
  * CVE-2008-1947 fix (cross-site-scripting issue in host-manager webapp)
