Help with the manager

Using the Tomcat (4.1.30) manager, I remove my application - the only problem is that Tomcat doesn't remove everything - the struts.jar file in the web application's WEB-INF/lib directory is still there (trying to manually delete while Tomcat is running gets me a message that the jar is in use).
Since Tomcat will not remove the directory, I cannot redeploy the application. Is there a way to set up Tomcat so I can do this? Is there a different problem?

Yes, I could put all the lib files in Tomcat's shared lib folder, except that I don't have access to that folder.
The point is to be able to remove and re-deploy an application without having to stop and start Tomcat. If I want/need to update the jar files, I should be able to re-deploy the WAR. Even if I was able to put the jars in the shared lib, updating the jars would require I stop all the other applications that might be running on Tomcat.
