All that means is that whatever is triggering the VM to crash wasn't
encountered with 3.1, and was with 3.2 -- not that there was no bug

There are *zero* ways that any pure-Java program (such as Tomcat) can
legitimately cause a JVM to segfault -- using native code is something
else again, but isn't an issue here.  Such problems are *always* due to
a bug in the VM itself.
