All of these are solved now and committed to both the main branch and
the tomcat_32 branch.

If anyone has the time (I'm afraid I don't) to do some stress testing
on Jasper, I think it would be a good idea. Number 3) above turned out
to be caused by static variables, missing resets in error cases, and
possibly a lack of synchronization here and there. Even after the fix
I did, there may be other similar cases that cause problems. 

I'm also pretty sure there's a number of synchronization points that can 
be removed after my fix, and with similar changes in other places, there 
may be even more. I'm not familiar enough with the code to dare do any
major changes here, but if someone who is has the time, it would be
great. This should probably be done for 3.3 instead of 3.2 though.
