I think it's pretty much definite that's what it's doing.

I would say then that there's something in the container that's chewing on SOAP. If you don't use SAML and are just using CAS, I don't have a lot of advice, but SAML has SOAP features like attribute queries you could also test. They should behave the same and break.
