and do not just silently use localhost:

I had put a wrong LAN IP in the server.xml's
<Host name=""

Tomcat did start, but unsurprisingly, my browser couldn't connect to it.

Please add a warning to the console (catalina.out) output!
Only by coincidence I noticed that the server was listening on localhost

You are confusing the address attribute of the connector and the name attribute
of the host.

I don't see what can easily be done to detect this sort of configuration error.
If you have a suggestion for a code change feel free to re-open this report and
provide a patch.
