It looks like everyone is complaining about the same example.  I guess
I haven't seen the problem because I don't map things down to the
exact page name.  I forward things by prefix directory.

So doing this:

ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

Works fine when accessing http://apache.address/webapp/mypage.

The problem seems to be when you try to map this:

ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

I don't know why you would map that way, but oh well.  Shame on Tomcat
for now following the RFC.
