I have made a change that might rectify this problem. The
DEFAULT_{DOMAIN,USERNAME,PASSWORD} attributes are no longer statically
initialized. They will be initialized when they are first accessed using
an initDefaults() method. This may or may not be sufficent to permit
the filter to initialize Config with proper values from the web.xml as
it has not been tested but existing behavior should be preserved.
