I'm using the same setup as you less Apache2.  I use tomcat as the web 
server.  Using TC5.0.28 and JDK1.4.2_06, and I have yet to have the 
server crash once.  Not much help, but might give you some clues where 
to look.

Connector log (mod_proxy....assuming you mean you're using the new 
connector code) there anything in the Apache2 log?  I assume from 
your post you mean that the java process just completely goes away.  You 
might find (depending on the running directory of the java process 
running tomcat) a pid dump log file or something...not sure if the vm 
produces one of these or not.  You also might check in /var/log/messages 
file to see if for some reason the kernel or some lib got some error it
