Struts Startup/Restart Resource Not Found Problem

I am having a strange problem with struts and Tomcat. I am using Struts 1.1 and I have tried both Tomcat 5.0.27 and 4.1.30.

Here is the problem:

When I deploy my war file and start Tomcat, the server starts up fine. When I try to access any struts action, I get "The requested resource (/ is not available."

Here is the strange part. If I stop and start Tomcat once, I can then access any action just fine with no resource not available errors.. This happens every time I deploy the app. Anyone know what is going on?

Thank you for your time,

Is the .do set up as your welcome file in web.xml??? If so, you can't do that.

It might also be worth it to check web.xml for ActionServlet's load-on-startup value.
