Going out on a limb here and don't know how much help I will be.

My off the wall speculation is that the duplication of the jar files bit

I haven't done any work on SunOS but from the man pages it looks like a
ps -ef -u tomcat
replace tomcat with the user that tomcat is running as. You can omit the -u 
tomcat part and it should list all processes and their user. Look for the 
jvm or jsvc if started with that. If you know what user tomcat is running as 
it should be listed, according to the man pages.
then do a
kill ?????
replace the ???s with the pid listed in the ps results

Try removing the jar files.

Granted this leaves you with a problem but hopefully someone can help you 
with that.
