Tomcat will occasionally serve up JSP pages whose source has been deleted. Is this a feature or a bug? If it's a feature, can you turn it off?

This is a bug in Tomcat 3.1 (actually in Jasper). The JSP reloading system that Jasper uses also occassionaly stops reloading a page no matter how many more changes you make. Jasper is being largely rewritten for Tomcat 4.0 (which includes support for JSP 1.2) so hopefully this bug will not exist in this next version.
