Works fine in dev environment with some of my webapps. Specifically
configured with NIO connector, no SSL, no Websocket usage, small heap
(-Xmx128M, compressed OOPs). Mac OS X on Oracle 1.7.0_40-b43 (64-bit).

Yay! Did anything actually change? I think this had been done before, no?

Does this affect catalina.out? I'm still seeing multi-line messages
going to catalina.out (stderr/stdout).

Strangely, I got 2171 of these in catalina.out when launching:

Sep 18, 2013 4:03:42 PM org.apache.catalina.webresources.Cache getResource
WARNING: Unable to add the resource at [{0}] to the cache because there
was insufficient free space available after evicting expired cache
entries - consider increasing the maximum size of the cache

I don't have anything cache-related defined in my server.xml (nor
META-INF/context.xml) so I suspect I have whatever defaults are

Of primary concern is that I have not specifically configured anything,
and with what I consider to be a modestly-small-sizes webapp, I got 2171
warnings on startup. Yikes. The 'resource' isn't named, which is a
slight concern, too.

After using my webapp for a bit, I started getting more of the above
warnings in catalina.out. I'm up to 2299 at this point.
