Because it annoys me?!

OK, ok, I'll let it go, then.. :-)

(Linux "process-threads" DO use resources though. I'm now trying green
threads! :)

The main reason is that I kind of wondered if my configuration really was
working, me specifying max 3 threads, while getting 10-12. So, again,
Tomcat really uses about 10 "background threads"? If so, I'm OK with that.

Merry christmas! Just taking a slight break from all the Christmas fat!
