Hi Anders

You say

"I have noticed that when I change sakai.properties the modifications 
doesn’t work when I log in to sakai"

but changes to sakai.properties are only picked up by restarting the 
tomcat. Did you do this before looking for the changes?
Also, sakai.home is where the system (by default, iirc) looks for 
sakai.properties, so is that where the file is?
