Could you show the web.xml for the host as well please. What is the full context path you are requesting as for just "/lm/spring"? Interesting, what makes you think that "null path request gets shunted through the StaticResourceServlet"
Where is "__resource-servlet" defined, I can't see it in the web.xml so I don't know how it's mapped the request to it? I think I'm missing something, want to get this straight before I try and recreate it myself.
Also, how were these bundles deployed, Pickup, Admin Console or through the tooling?

The web.xml for the host (again minus the root element, because the forum sees the URLs in it and won't let me post links):|
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<display-name>Virgo Web Portal</display-name>
The host is configured at Web-ContextPath '/lm'.
I'm not sure what you mean by "What is the full context path you are requesting as for just '/lm/spring'?". Guessing, the context should be to my Snap bundle -- called lmportal-spring, and residing in the lmportal-spring.jar file that you see in that log. That bundle's MANIFEST.MF has "Snap-ContextPath: /spring", mapping it to the full context '/lm/spring'.
__resource-servlet comes from Snap's own default web.xml -- in org.eclipse.virgo.snaps.core, in the src/main/resources/META-INF/snaps/default-web.xml file. It maps to Virgo's own StaticResourceServlet (org.eclipse.virgo.snaps.core.internal.webapp.StaticResourceServlet).
These bundles are all deployed via uploading them in the Admin Console.
I believe that Tomcat natively is supposed to handle welcome-file negotiation, so something's happening in Snaps to override this. (It's all spelled out in the Servlet spec, section 9.10 in Servlet 2.4.) Just looking at the log file I posted originally, I suspect that the problem here is that the default configuration for the Snaps host (as spelled out in that default-web.xml, etc.) is claiming control over the root ('/') of all deployed Snaps, rather than allowing Tomcat to try to do its welcome-file dance first.
