The JetspeedContainer is no longer added to the web.xml in M4 (SVN head).

However, looking at other M3 deployments, I haven't seen the stack track 
for the NPE.

Could you send the stack trace?

Yes, you can remove it, but it appears to be re-inserted at some point 
during servlet startup. I need to research this and see how it was 
happening. I think we should have the container in the /jetspeed 
context, as it allows for portlets to run inside the default portal 
context, which might be desirable for some users or even for admin portlets
