This message (98) is APR OS error (EADDRINUSE).
Tomcat has been changed to display the real message (5.5.13+)

The reason is probably because either real port (8080) is in use
or the previous Tomcat version was shut down improperly.
Wait a wile (cca 240 sec) until the OS recycles the zombie descriptor.
