There's almost certainly an explanation for the problem you're seeing.
But I simply don't know which.

Here are some things which are IMO worth trying:
- Download an official Tomcat package from
(preferably the latest 6.0.x) and check if that shows the same behaviour.
- Post the complete log of Tomcat's startup sequence. Maybe someone can
spot something odd.
- Increase Tomcat's logging verbosity if the normal log provides no
useful info.
- Hope that Chuck chimes in and comes up with his insightful advice how
to track down what's happening and how to solve the problem.
