We did have the same problem.
We removed the "." from the CLASSPATH and/or
also make sure tomcat starts only in tomcat home.
This seemed to help.. however
we have a slightly different problem with reload..

 now tomcat (3.1) stops reloading abruptly after
a while. this is very confusing. when we detect
that we restart tomcat.. and again it reloads for a while.

any clues why this might happen?
