Default problem with tomcat-users.xml (4.1.24)

I have a Tomcat 4.1.24 server running on https on a redhat linux enterprise.

I have a valid tomcat-users.xml from another web server, but when I try and log into the manager or admin application it simply does not acknowledge the user I have with the admin,manager roles in the xml file.
There is an apache webserver on the machine as well, but the failure to authenticate seems to be from the tomcat server. The catalina home is correct.

I can't think of any reason why i can't log in using the users I have specified in the tomcat-users.xml file

it looks like this (with password changed, obviously :)

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
  <role rolename="manager"/>
  <role rolename="admin"/>
  <user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="manager,admin"/>
