This sounds like the StandardManager thread could be running on a lower
priority. This because lower priority threads in Java apparently are
guaranteed to starve if there are other higher pri (normal, then) which
wants to do work..

Could this be it? I have no clue as of the pri of the manager (or anything
else of the internals of Tomcat, to be honest), but it sure sounds like a
thread starvation problem.

Anyways it sounds like something that definately shouldn't happen.

One thing, though: why/how did the serialization mechanism kick in? I
thought that would be handled by the manager too?
