Additionally: The line res.sendError causes the IllegalStateException
that you also posted (that is the one polluting the log):

> mortbay.log - Committed before 500 Error: timeout
> java.lang.IllegalStateException: Committed

Reason: if the client started the download the http headers are "long
gone" to the client, but res.sendError tries to set the header status
code to 500. I believe tomcat names this error message "Response already
committed". There is absolutely no way, that the internal server error
can be signalled as such in a download that probably started as a "200"
download and was cancelled after the first part has been transmitted.

Therefor you're right: only one line should be logged. The res.sendError
line can do nothing else and should really be removed.
