Subject Re: 1.0 Release Status

Regardless...AFAICT...the error is gone in Tomcat.  So whatever folks
did in the last 24 hours fixed this problem (or so it seems).  I now
have 4 confirmed that its running w/o the warning...but I won't claim
victory yet.  Lets see if others get it.

The only problem we get now is an INFO message on shutdown of the root
context saying that the context has already been shut down:

23:38:07,981 INFO  [StandardContext] Container
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Geronimo].[localhost].[/] has
not been started

This is a harmless message (not a warning or error).  This is a life
cycle issue as it looks like some other component already shut the
context this has no negative effect other than its ugly.

I will try to track down who/what is shutting this down early.
