Can't be done on 4.1.30.  Well, you could grab the tomcat-ajp.jar from a 
recent 5.5 release and replace the corresponding jar in 4.1.30 (probably 
called tomcat-jk or something).  You might need to replace tomcat-coyote.jar 
as well (I don't remember).  Then you shouldn't see the messages unless 
you've enabled DEBUG logging level.  All Tomcat versions use the same 
Connector code, so this kind of partial-upgrade should work.  However, 
pretty much nobody wants to run a hybrid Tomcat version ;-).

There should be a logging message just before the dump that explains why 
Tomcat isn't happy.  Depending on how you've setup logging, it possible that 
it's in another log file.

What it is, is that Tomcat is dumping the Request data it received when it 
encounters what it thinks is a serious error (so that the Tomcat developers 
can see what went wrong from the bug report :).  In TC 5.5 (and possible in 
TC 5.0) it requires DEBUG log level to see it.  This will also be true in TC 
4.1.32 and TC 3.3.3 if they ever see the light of day ;-).
