When I start the tomcat service the web-inf\lib directories for each webapp is being deleted. Has anyone run into this problem before?

Tomcat Version: 4.1.30
OS: Win XP Pro & Win 2003 Std

I never heard of that one! Pretty alarming, I'm sure.
How are you deploying your web applications? Are .WAR files involved?

Is Tomcat installed as a windows service?
How are you starting it?
Does Tomcat die or continue to run?
Any useful messages showing up in the logs?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
