Subject Re: Tomcat Crashing on Linux

You are correct.  Crashing is the wrong way to describe it.
There is a process still active in my process list.

This has become frequent enough that I should be able to track it down.
However; I don't know what triggers the failure.  I only know that it happens 
every few days on both computers.

Thanks for the advice I will follow it and let you know what I discover.
