First, note the [dbcp] prepended to the subject.  Putting the
component name at the start of the subject is our convention on this

Now to your problem. It would be useful to have a little more

1) What versions of commons dbcp and commons pool are you running?
The latest versions at this time are dbcp 1.3 (for JDK 1.4-1.5) or
dbcp 1.4 (JDK 1.6) and pool 1.5.4.
