|Summary:||Webmds can break if started from the wrong directory|

If there's a client-config.wsdd file (that's different from the one that webmds uses) in the current directory that tomcat is started from, webmds may throw an exception when trying to read its configuration files. Workaround: when starting tomcat, be sure you're in a directory that doesn't include a client-config.wsdd file (in other words, don't start tomcat from $GLOBUS_LOCATION).
Added code to CVS to detect this condition and display a meaningful error message (so it still won't work if you start it from the wrong directory, but it will at least tell you what's wrong and how to fix it instead of throwing a confusing exception).
