For now, any case where one can't use the default chain should begin 
with extracting the default chain from the struts-core JAR and 
editing it, and then explicitly specifying an alternate location for 
the file in the web.xml init parameters.

if it does a redirect, that would explain the doubling as well as the 
correct population after the redirect -- but especially in the chain 
model,  I wouldn't advise that as the best way to solve the problem.

You always have us here on the list ;-)
