It indicates that after a web application has been stopped, an attempt was 
made to load a class using the classloader for the stopped web application.

In an ideal world, you shouldn't see these. It usually indicates something 
is holding a reference to the classloader that really shouldn't. If you are 
sure all is well, you can ignore it. However, I would check, with a 
profiler, to make sure you haven't got a memory leak.
