|filtering with infocenter as WAR [message #701232]

When deploying the Eclipse infocenter into Apache/Tomcat as a WAR, what is the expected behavior with a help plugin that has filtering enabled?
I have a help plugin that contains an Activator, EarlyStartup, and a PropertyTester, along with all the help content. Filters are used only in the TOC xml file, not in the html content. When I deploy this plugin in workbench (local) mode, filtering works as expected and all is fine.
I know filtering is off by default in infocenter mode. When I add this same plugin (unchanged from workbench mode) into the WAR and deploy it, should I expect to see ALLcontent, or NO content?
The behavior I see is the latter: NO content. Nothing shows up in the table of contents pane at all.
A couple theories I have:
1) the content is not appearing because filtering is off. (The exact opposite of what I would expect.)
2) the plugin has one or more dependencies that are satisfied in workbench mode, but not satisfied in the infocenter WAR, therefore the plugin cannot be loaded.
I know the WAR is working because I have successfully deployed a different help plugin that does not use filtering.
I have read the docs 10000 times, and I have tried to turn filtering on (I can't even tell if my attempts at this were successful but I doubt they were), I have tried pretty much everything I can think of but nothing I do has any effect. I have looked in the Catalina logs, there is nothing in there indicating any error loading the plugin.
Any insights or info on how to tell what actually happens when I access the remote infocenter would be greatly appreciated.
