Tomcat/JAVA/Web Server/SSL - troubles

I am running my web application on Tomcat 4.1.x (configured with IIS) and found out that Tomcat seems to have a bug under the following circumstances:

A user can access my web application without problems. But the download of an applet fails when:
- JRE 1.4.1 is installed
- Tomcat is running with IIS (AJP-Connector)
- a user context is passed from IIS to Tomcat (REMOTE_USER)
- sessions are used to grant access to the applet (servlet filter)

Does somebody know why this happens under these circumstances?

I would appreciate you help,

I suspect that IIS is trying to serve the .class files directly, just like it would serve image files, so Tomcat never sees the request.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
