i had a similar problem.  solved by switching CATALINA_HOME environment variable back to 4.0.1.
 in general, when running tomcat standalone, we have to make sure that the env variables are
set properly.  you see this right after tomcat startup--the env settings that tomcat is using
are printed on sysout.  i'm not sure why it works in item 4 even without switching the variables.
 perhaps jboss takes care of it.

if for some reason tomcat hangs and tomcat shutdown doesn't do it, i kill all java processes.
 but of course that also kills other non-tomcat processes.  what's easiest way to determine
which processes belong to tomcat?
