Someone from the Jboss list wrote me that :

  Could this have something to do with the manifest entry?

  I know that I have had similar problems that went away when would
  extract everything from a jar file and rejar it without manifest

And IT ACTUALLY SOLVED the problem. So with Manifest files in catalina.jar 
---> core dump , and without (M option in jar tool) --> No problem so far.

I should remind that the problem is more related to the JDK1.3 JVM on 
win32 OS than to Catalina code, but who knows how many people is going to 
report the issue ?

The note is here for archival, I might tell it to sun (if not done yet).

All the best,
