--- Comment #9 from Mark Thomas <> ---
I haven't dug into this far enough to idenitfy the trigger for this but it
looks like whatever change triggered the probem in Java 7 has been back-ported
to Java 6 but the change that allowed us to change the default for
appContextProtection hasn't been back-ported.

I can't tell if this is an Apple specific issue or one that will affect anyone
using the Oracle (commerical) supported Java 6 binaries.

An additional factor to take into consideration is the general reluctance of
the Tomcat dev community to add work-arounds for bugs in third-party products
(yes the JreMemoryLeakPreventionListener is a pretty big exception to that

Given that OSX seems to be a fairly popular platform amongst Java developers
then I think your second patch is the way to go for now. If this emerges as a
wider Java 6 issue we can look at using java.awt.headless=true instead.

The patch has been applied to 7.0.x and will be included in 7.0.42 onwards.
