WebApps not isolated in Tomcat?

Hi, there is a Tomcat 5.5 instance, and I've deployed two webapps by dropping the WAR files into the webapps folder.
The database connection string, respectively, is read from a properties file, which resides in WEB-INF/classes.
The code to read a property is simply,


Now, the problem is, both webapps are using the same properties file, the one of webapp1.

I made sure that's a fact, and also made sure there are no offending JARs in $CLASSPATH, $TOMCAT_HOME/webappX/WEB-INF/lib or $TOMCAT_HOME/common.

Any ideas???

Thanks
Robert

Edit: BTW, the method that retrieves the values from the properties file is static.
Edit: Strange enough, some legacy webapps within the same Tomcat instance are throwing errors now, because Java method signatures have changed.
Thus, actually a set of WEB-INF/classes gets loaded from other webapps(!).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
