                      AM                       Subject:  Tomcat shutdown does not kill java

I'm running Tomcat 4.0.3 stand-alone on a Solaris 8 server.  When I execute
bin/, the java process that has been running Tomcat does not
terminate.  I can restart Tomcat fine (via bin/ but, if I then
do a ps -ef, I see both the old and new java processes there.  I have to
kill the old java process to get rid of it.  I do all and commands as root.

Before I discovered that this was happening, I ended up with multiple
(Tomcat) java processes spanning several days.  I don't think the
now-unused java processes are consuming CPU time (at least not much) but I
worry that they are consuming memory.  (ps -leaf still shows them as having
memory allocated, if I'm understanding what I'm seeing properly.)

Any ideas why the java process doesn't terminate when I shutdown Tomcat?

Thanks in advance.
