org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader.ENABLE_CLEAR_REFERENCES=true (the
default) is provided to work around memory leak issues in applications and
third party libraries. While well written code shouldn't need it, experience
has shown that it fixes more issues than it creates - hence the default.

The down side of this feature is that it can cause issues since it nulls out
various internal fields and code may well react badly to this.

It should be safe to set this to false providing your app and the libraries you
use don't leak memory. You can always check this with a profiler.
