I had something similar.  The cause was an infinite JSP forward loop.
Some magic caused the loop to break after 100 cycles, but sometimes
the JVM experienced a seg fault instead.  With a seg fault there is no
chance to write anything to the log files, of course, but an error is
to STDERR or STDOUT - we have output redirected to a file using nohup.
Under Unix a core file is generated unless you turn that off (I don't know
if Windows has core files) - make sure you have core file generation turned
We are running tomcat3.2.4/jdk1.3.1 on Solaris.
