That's during compilation.  I always setup tomcat to fork when compiling 
jsp.  That means it runs a seperate process to compile pages.  I do this 
in both production and testing.  I just like the feeling it gives me :-P 
...  well it's just better to not worry about it for me.  The bug is 
supposed to be gone in 1.4.2, but I still fork.
