Are you using log4j to handle the Tomcat internal logs?  I had a similar
problem a while back when a misconfigured log4j was having the Connector
effectively log at the "trace" level.

Subject: Request parameters in catalina.out


Hello,

I am getting output like this in my catalina.out file:

12 34 00 3c 00 3a 61 63 74 69 6f 6e 3d 43 68 61  | .4.<.:action=Cha 6e
67 65 2b 50 61 73 73 77 6f 72 64 26 6d 75 6d  | nge+Password&mum [snip]

Nothing I have coded should be printing anything like this, and it 
happens for (apparently) any app running in the instance, whenever a 
form is submitted.  The input fields and their values (the POST or GET 
data) are printed into catalina.out.  This is a security problem, 
obviously.

Can anyone tell me what is going on?  I have been over every line of my 
server.xml file and cannot find anything that is turned on that would 
seem to be responsible for this behavior.

Thanks,
Tim
